Democracy for Development

SPEECH DELIVERED:
23 October 2007
UK

"This paper offers initial reflections on the pertinent and timely questions raised by the Conference background document. It is based on the awareness that the topic, though increasingly studied and discussed in academic and political circles alike, has not led to date to clear and indubitable conclusions. Both democracy and development can be understood in a narrow and in a very broad sense. While the former seems to be preferred by those still attempting to quantify and measure their mutual influences, the latter seems to better reflects social realities in which both categories transcend the realm of technicalities to become eminently political."
