Chapter 11: Travelling across developing countries: unpacking the role of South–South Cooperation and civil society in policy transfer
The role of non-state actors and South-South policy flows belong to new frontiers of policy transfer research. This chapter maps and discusses emerging research interfaces between the pluralistic field of policy transfer studies (including policy transfer, diffusion, circulation and mobility) and South-South Cooperation (SSC) studies. Through a bibliometric survey and a qualitative literature review, the chapter unpacks the most frequent geographies and traveling objects in South-South policy flows channelled and enabled by SSC as well as the ways in which civil society engagement in SSC - in both sides of the equation - affects which policies travel and how they land. We argue that those emerging conversations, particularly those focusing on Brazil-Africa agricultural exchanges, are important contributions to both fields of study and offer promising research venues for scholars across the board.
