The 2005 Trócaire Development Review examines some of the wider debates and concerns in place about the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Topics under discussion include the MDGs and the broader human rights agenda that has emerged in the 20th century, MDG 8 and global trade, aid effectiveness, the role of international financial institutions, and the progress that has been made to achieve the MDGs in the specific context of Zambia.
Several recently-published key texts on development are reviewed.
