The Brandt Commission

Briefing/policy papers

This Briefing Paper summarises the recently published report by the Brandt Commission (BC), the Independent Commission on Development Issues. The paper argues that although very few of the BC's proposals are new, the report’s uniqueness lies in its central theme of 'mutuality of interest', which is claimed to be a concept capable of revitalizing flagging North-South negotiations.
