A Voice for the Excluded: Popular Participation in Development, Utopia or Necessity?



This is a comparative study of the concept of participation in development. The book calls for beneficial development to allow for the empowerment of local communities. Pulling together the findings of field studies in Latin American and Asian countries, it focuses on the organized efforts of "the excluded" as well of NGOs, the state and international agencies. The book shows how all interact with differing purposes to encourage, coopt or undermine participatory struggles and initiatives. The authors combine historical context, theoretical clarity and sociological examination of a wide variety of actual cases.
