The paternalism of partnership: A postcolonial reading of identity in development aid
School of Global Studies.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-7702-2000
2005 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The development industry has been criticised recently from very diverse quarters. This book is a nuanced and original investigation of Northern donor agency personnel as they deliver aid in Tanzania. The author explores in particular how donor identities are manifested in the practices of development aid, and how calls for equal partnership between North and South are often very different in practice. She demonstrates the conflicts and tensions in the development aid process. These reflect both the longstanding critique of the eurocentric nature of development, and discourse that still assumes images of the superior, initiating, efficient ‘donor‘ as opposed to the inadequate, passive, unreliable ‘partner‘ or recipient.
