Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


In my reflections of the 2004 Editorial I wrote with Smitu Kothari, I first look at what I consider to be the salient points of our original text. I then move onto underline what I think we need to be even more vigilant about today as we consider who has the ‘right’ to development.
