9. Do We Need a Common Good Approach to Development?

  • Helen Alford (author)
In this chapter Helen Alford revises the strengths and limits of current development trends, arguing that the integration of the different dimensions of development is today one of the biggest challenges. This is clearly acknowledged by the SDGs, but not resolved. She argues that a common good approach to development precisely addresses the dynamic integration of development goals and that this changes the way we think about development itself. She then goes on to describe possible implications of such an approach for business and finance.
