Purpose of Reading List

This list is interdisciplinary and includes relevant research from Anthropology, Economics, Education, History, Management, Political Science, Public Health, and Sociology about the connections of International Development and race/colonization. For ease, it is divided between the three themes where race and international development intersect - within country differences, cross-country differences and racial dynamics within the Development/NGO sector. 

Questions about this list can be directed to elevatempaid@gmail.com and syeda_masood@brown.edu
