With the abrupt demise of the Trans-Pacific Partnership on the one hand, and the institutionalisation of China’s international development ambitions through the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank on the other, understanding the intersection of international development in the Asia-Pacific with regional and global economic and political dynamics is more pressing than ever. At the same time, the practice of delivering development assistance is undergoing significant challenges and changes with, for instance, rising support for Universal Basic Income strategies across the development divide. This section invites papers that interrogate this changing development landscape, whether from a micro- or macro-perspective. Empirical, theoretical, and normative contributions are all encouraged.
