Abstract

The search for transformatory development practice, distanced from colonial binaries and representations, has been the focus of decades of scholarship. Recent research suggests that INGOs are central in this regard, whether in their governance, fundraising, advocacy, knowledge-management, engagement with others or their approach to programme design. This paper progresses these debates by providing empirical evidence of the value of domestic programming in this ‘project’. Drawing on three case studies, the paper finds evidence of INGOs’ search for a programme strategy, which moves minimising the violence of ‘othering’ from theory to practice.
