Europe Global Environment & Development The New South From G8 to G20 The Development Agenda UN Reform Global Finance Doha Final The Euro-zone in Crisis Eastern Europe

Issue 3/May-Jun 2007


* German G8 Politics on the Eve of Heiligendamm. Making everybody happy? Not really ...
The German G8 agenda and the drafts for the Heiligendamm final declarations that have leaked to date are full of clichés: growth and responsibility, social and sustainable shaping of globalisation and – obviously – fair partnership with the rest of the world. That sounds good, and it even seems as were the German government inclined to make everyone happy. However, this impression is deceptive. The gigantic expense just for security is entirely disproportional to the economic and development policy outcomes to be delivered by this summit, write Rainer Falk and Barbara Unmüßig.

* G8: Surprise Us ... and Remember Your Promises! Heiligendamm would be a wonderful opportunity
In a few weeks, eight of the world’s most important leaders will meet in Heiligendamm. Joining them will be media and activists from around the world, closely following the proceedings, ready to analyse the implications of every word. So as the G8 meets again, what can we expect? Well, for those working towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals by 2015, I would say not much, writes Eveline Herfkens.

* The G8, Africa, and NEPAD: Self-proclaimed Success. The emperor's new clothes at Heiligendamm
Since the beginning of this century the G8 started to cultivate a special intimate relationship to representatives of a “new Africa” in response to their courting. Not by accident, Angela Merkel announced for the forthcoming summit in Heiligendamm at the Baltic Sea that the further expansion of this link into “reform partnerships” would officially rank among the priorities on the agenda. That does however not necessarily mean that this will indeed happen. A critical appraisal by Henning Melber.

* Rogue Aid Talk: Mirror, Mirror on the Wall ... Moisés Naím and the new donors
Under the heading “Rogue Aid” Moisés Naím, editor of the US magazine Foreign Policy, has published an article that has attracted considerable international interest (see reference). Articles of this kind, in which up-and-coming countries of the South are perceived primarily as a threat, have recently become very common in the OECD world. Naím’s views are, however, particularly typical, writes Tatjana Chahoud.
