discusses how neoliberalism engendered new understandings of development (or development 2.0), and whether these understandings were actually as new as they seemed
First you can only use the resources that i posted. You can't use any other resources.Read the articles and the whole book :Julia Elyachar-Markets of Dispossession_ NGOs, Economic Development, and the State in Cairo (Politics, History, and Culture)-Duke University Press Books (2005). Also ready all the notes carefully, that will lead you to write the essay.
Please respond to the following question in a paper of roughly 5 pages in length. Your paper should have a clear thesis statement, introduction, elaborations and supporting points, and conclusion.
As we have discussed in lecture/discussion/readings, we see a widespread shift in development schemes from a large scale "top down" approach in which states and large banks (i.e. IMF and WB) are the key agents implementing development projects, towards small scale projects led principally by NGOs, non profit groups, and communities (churches, etc.). However, big projects never went away either, and some of this "new development" is actually a return to an earlier "way of doing development" that goes back to 19th century missionaries, for example. This redesign of "how to develop" is predicated on different understandings of what development is (and of the state, the market, and of who is best suited to bring about development), and relies on different strategies, being largely focused on changing behavior and subjectivity. Also, as the result of the collapse of formerly taken for granted state-centered mechanisms for achieving development, the very definition of what development is has changed, as the term and its implications are reinterpreted and grappled with by varying people and groups on the ground (as in the case of the Omieri situation, discussed in class).
In a roughly 5 page double spaced paper, make an argument which discusses how neoliberalism engendered new understandings of development (or development 2.0), and whether these understandings were actually as new as they seemed. Drawing specifically on Elyachar's Markets of Dispossession, as well as other examples from class and readings, compare/contrast these two development approaches, their basic tenets and points of agreement and disagreement.
Make sure you draw attention to at least 3 of the following 4 topics:
1) "anti-politics" (as in the anti-politics machine),
2) accumulation by dispossession,
3) the impact of notions of scarcity/lack/absence/denial of coevalness (these are roughly analogous, closely related things).
