About this product
- DescriptionInternationally, dors are increasing their emphasis on poverty-focused policies and on the tion of pro-poor growth. Attempts to reformulate policies and reshape practices so that they rework the balance between a focus on poverty and a focus on growth bring small and microenterprises on to the centre stage of development debates. Yet these enterprises are seen, variously, as engines of growth, as refuges for the poor, and as signs of ecomic failure. This book is concerned to revisit key elements of the debate about small and microenterprises through the lens of the current poverty-growth debate and in the specific context of Africa. Leading practitioners, academics and policymakers examine the evidence from across a range of disciplines to ask a series of crucial questions: * Is the macroecomic climate a break on small enterprise development? * Are small enterprises, and policies and programmes to support them, succeeding? * Does education make a difference to enterprise performance?
- Author BiographyKenneth King is Director of the Centre of African Studies and Professor of International and Comparative Education at the University of Edinburgh. He has worked for many years on international education and training, the African small enterprise sector and aid policy.
