Description - A Moral Critique of Development by Anta Kumar Giri

In the 21st century, the ideology of development is no longer above question. Recent confrontational critiques of international development practice, affecting organisations as prestigious as Oxfam, Action Aid and the Red Cross, have attacked the motives of those heading the "monolithic machine" of global development, suggesting that development intervention is in reality just too politically complex for real good to come of it. But, despite the genuine need for a critical appraisal of development work, the anti-development backlash would appear to result in a moral impasse. Should we try to help countries and people in need, or refuse potentially corrupt or harmful involvements? This book provides a pragmatic moral response to this crisis of faith. Featuring perspectives from workers and consultants in the development industry, the book draws practical lessons from actual projects.
