Contested Development

Working Papers

The working paper series provides free access to high quality research and theoretical papers from Contested Development Research Domain members. With time from submission to publication in international peer review journals sometimes approaching 24 months it is important to find mechanisms for rapid dissemination of material. This is the aim of the series which presents work submitted to peer review journals or other publication outlets but in working paper form. Topics covered so far include sustainable consumption, governance and climate change, international development and resource and species conservation.
