The new role of middle-income countries (MICs) in the global econo-political landscape means a reconfiguration of development cooperation is to be expected. On the one hand, MICs still face considerable structural deficits that affect their process of development; on the other, the international community needs MICs to participate more intensively in the international agenda. This chapter argues that development cooperation can support both purposes, although for this to happen substantial changes are required in approaches to and procedures of current international aid.
