Product description

Review

'A timely critique of the participation discourse and expose of the seductive arts of official incorporation. Essential reading for all those studying and practising international development as well as social policy nearer home.' Geoff Wood, University of Bath 'Unmasks the moral tyranny imposed through the language of participation which has come to dominate the discourse of 'devspeak'. In exploring participatory practices from several points of view - social psychology, sociology of management, Goffman's analysis of social performance, Foucauldian analysis of discourses and their power - it shows how radical and democratic language may be co-opted with the aim of bringing people's views and expectations into line with the plans devised, with their participation, by their betters. Makes a vital contribution to the sociology of development.' Gavin Williams, University of Oxford

Synopsis

This study shows how particpatory development can lead to the unjust and illegitimate exercise of power. The book addresses the gulf between the almost universally fashionable rhetoric of participation, empowerment and appropriate development, and what actually happens in practice.
