Seattle University School of Law - Center for Global Justice
Transnational Law & Contemporary Problems, Vol. 9, No. 1, 1999
This review essay critically interrogates the discourse and practice of development. It is argued that models of alternative development remain imprisoned in the ontological categories of the development project, an ideological and institutional devise to consolidate the hegemony of the West over the rest. Finally, a framework to explore alternatives to development is suggested.
