Development Models in Muslim Contexts

Edinburgh University Press

This concluding chapter aims to draw out from the preceding chapters answers to key questions about the transportability to Muslim countries of development models, particularly the Chinese model. These questions turn on perceptions of the model at the sending and receiving ends; the viability and sustainability of the model itself; the economic, political, and cultural bilateral and regional relations that provide the context within which the model is perceived and acted upon; preconditions for the adoption and success of the model; the role of competitive models; and the type of governance assumed by the model and whether viable functional substitutes for governance institutions can be found. Answers to these questions may, in turn, enable an assessment of the relevance of models for development, especially across Muslim majority countries.

Keywords:   Muslim countries, development models, Chinese model, governance, competitive models, development
