Abstract

Emerging economies emphasise horizontality and mutual opportunity in their relationship with developing countries, promising an alternative to the failings of traditional North-South co-operation. This article draws on research on Brazil"s technical co-operation and its health dimension to compare the Brazilian model with established aid-effectiveness" principles and to discuss the appropriateness of the latter as standards against which to appraise emerging donors" co-operation. The analysis shows that, despite progress towards greater dialogue between traditional and emerging donors, the "aid-effectiveness" framework still falls short of capturing the idiosyncrasies of South-South co-operation and therefore offers an incomplete international standard on how best to conduct development co-operation.
