Trade and Development Report 1981-2011

Three Decades of Thinking Development

This publication identifies the key issues in the global economy and the design of development strategies addressed in the Trade and Development Report over the past three decades, tracing them through its various editions. It shows how ideas, opinions and proposals expressed in the Trade and Development Report, and the analytical approaches used, differed from those of “the mainstream” and their evolution in response to new challenges. This review revisits the concept of interdependence and explains the approach of the reports to macroeconomic and financial policies in both developed and developing countries. It also summarizes development policy failures and successes over the years.

Hide / Show Abstract

At UNCTAD, we believe that our research and analysis is the backbone of our work on trade and development and on the various related issues that the organization addresses. The aim is to provide ahead-of-the-curve and innovative analysis and policy advice. And, as Yilmaz Akyüz was saying, passion for independence is always there, with a critical mind and a focus on development – an approach which is our pride. If there is any report coming out of UNCTAD that symbolizes and embodies the spirit of this objective, it is the TDR. In UNCTAD, we talk about a number of flagship publications, but I think that deep down we all know that there is only one flagship publication, and that is the TDR.
