Abstract

South-South economic relations are increasing, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. There will be more trade agreements, more economic and political alliances and an acknowledgement that the Global South has much to offer. These new economic relations have great potential - both for harm and for good. Covering a wide range of topics - from the strengths and weaknesses of regional trade integration in Africa, the potential environmental impacts of South-South trade and the changing patterns of South-South investment to the role of conflict in stymieing trade in South Asia - this ground-breaking volume presents a forward-looking analysis of South-South economic relations, and how they might impact and be impacted by the rest of the world.
