Procurement Linkages and Developing Countries

Procurement Linkages and Developing Countries

(p.231) 9 Procurement Linkages and Developing Countries
Buying Social Justice

Christopher McCrudden

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the use of procurement linkages aiming to further status equality in two developing countries — Malaysia and South Africa — and reactions to these policies at the international level. First, the development of procurement linkages in South Africa since the fall of apartheid and South Africa's decision not to join the GPA are discussed. Second, the approaches adopted by Malaysia, especially the defeat of a proposed multilateral agreement on transparency in government procurement, are considered. The use of domestic constitutional law to avoid tensions caused by the use of procurement linkages to bring about changes in other countries is examined in the context of the United States Supreme Court's decision relating to the constitutionality of the Massachusetts legislation concerning Myanmar.
