International Development

This chapter assesses the institutional consequences of the misalignment of representational arrangements in the main consultative forums for development cooperation, given the considerable shifts in the actual balance of power in the global order that have taken place over the past decade. The main finding is that the growing inter-state contestation between the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) as rising donors and the traditional donors has resulted in three institutional outcomes: the modification of existing consultative platforms; the creation of new consultative forms; and the paralysis and decay of the established multilateral consultative forums. This messy multilateralism means a more negotiated order, where the respective consultative forums will continue to contend for influence, each with its own strengths and weaknesses, and where the efficient delivery of global public goods will be impaired by overlapping mandates and systemic gaps

Keywords:   BRICS, rising states, rising donors, traditional donors, development cooperation, global aid regime, multilateral organization, inter-state rivalry
