Title:'Tracking development': Nigeria and Indonesia in comparative perspective
Author:Wiel, Arie van derISNI
Periodical:Nigerian Journal of International Affairs
Geographic terms:Subsaharan Africa
Abstract:Tracking Development is a research project comparing the development experiences of sub-Saharan African and Southeast Asian countries in order to find out why the Asian countries were, in general, more successful than the sub-Saharan African countries. The development trajectories of eight different countries, four in Southeast Asia and four in Africa, are compared, looking at aspects that are particularly relevant, in order to arrive at conclusions as to what might be the reasons for the different experiences. Indonesia is compared with Nigeria (and given particular attention in this paper), Vietnam with Tanzania, Malaysia with Kenya and Cambodia with Uganda. In each country a research institution is appointed that is responsible for a comparative country study. The project is funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Development Cooperation. Ref., sum.
