Comment on Jilles van Gastel's contribution. "Policy makers and project peasants: The world of Dutch development cooperation"

Entwicklungsethnologie 14.2005:175-184


##An innovative analysis of processes of discourse and decision-making concerning the research policy of a dominant international actor suggests that policy making for development is governed by short-term political interests of actors in the north. A striking aspect of incomplete information in the paper raises sensitive political and ethical issues. Researchers need to consider the risks involved in publishing results critical of powerful development agencies.##
