This volume explores how international organizations became involved in the making of global development policy, and looks at the driving forces and dynamics behind that process, critically assessing the consequences their policies have had around the world. This volume explores how international organizations became involved in the making of global development policy. The book looks at the driving forces and dynamics behind that process, and critically assesses the consequences their policies have had around the world. It addresses problems that are at the core of today's debate about international organizations: how and why did international organizations and INGOs make development their mission in the first place? What did they promise and what were they expected to achieve? How did they conceptualize development and through what means did they promote it? What changes did they bring about in the field of global development? And thus, what difference did they make?
