Crewe, Emma (2007) 'Towards better outcomes for children: Alternative Perspectives on International Development.' Journal of Children’s Services, 2 (4). pp. 59-70.
Contrary to prevailing wisdom, international development does not either succeed or fail. It does both. With reference to case study material gleaned from working with both grant-makers and international civil society organisations, this article critiques both the assumptions and organisation of development. This article articulates the problems but also demonstrates how: (1) partnerships could be reoriented so that power relations are continually challenged; (2) planning mechanisms could be more focused and efficient; and (3) innovation, learning and reflective action could be promoted so that practice is appropriate to the context and therefore promotes better outcomes for children.
