Media reviews
The language of aid, with its emphasis on participation, partnership, transparency and accountability often masks the very paradigm of development that it professes to critique--one result of the failure to grapple honestly with the complex ways in which power relations are played out along the aid chain. Reflecting on their own experiences of development assistance, contributors to this timely volume go beyond simply criticizing existing approaches to suggesting how to put the rhetoric of inclusive aid into practice. -- Deborah Eade, Editor, Development in Practice
