Description - The Politics of Development Co-operation by Lisa Aubrey

The Politics of Development Co-operation examines politics of inter-organizational development co-operation, examining issues of power, autonomy, and dependence. Focusing on Kenya and in particular on Maendeleo Ya Wanawake (MYWO), the largest national women's organization, and its partners in its relational environment, this book probes the relationships between foreign donors, grassroots development organizations and governments. Aubrey examines whether it is possible for the West and the developing world to be engaged in genuine development partnerships, the influence resource contributions, financial and technical have on agenda formulation and compromises, and whether organizations such as MYWO are truly NGOs, as they claim to be, or whether they remain an extension of the state exploited by patriarchal party politics. Gender is central to the analysis of this book with issues reflecting and reintroducing the politics of unequal resources in development co-operative partnerships. Differences in status among women are also systematically examined because the politics of development affect elite and grassroots women differently.
