The publication is special, both content-wise and process-wise, as it is entirely produced by (alumni and present) ISS PhD students, and Open Acces available. The book contains seven articles that were carefully selected out of the contributions for the Development Dialogue, which was held at ISS in 2008. All the articles question participatory processes and practices in development: participation by whom, for what, and how? These remain vital questions for moving forward in building new narratives and generating appropriate development strategies.
