Tomalin, Emma (2007) Buddhism and development: a background paper. RAD Working Papers Series.
The aim of this study is to provide a background paper that is concerned with the intersection between Buddhism and international development. Firstly, it provides a brief overview of Buddhist teachings, beliefs and practices; secondly, it will discuss the relationship between Buddhist values and key development concerns; and, finally, it will provide a more focussed investigation into some areas of development and the way that Buddhists might approach them (i.e. ecology;economics, poverty, debt and borrowing; gender; and peacebuilding).
