The report offers no ready-made solutions, no magic bullet or grand plan, either. Instead, the authors are trying to bring a closer, but critical look at the recent ‘alternatives’ discourses that seem to be most moving and shaking the field of development policy. Many of the concepts that are central to our development policy work may often become a newspeak, taken for granted.
