ANTI DEVELOPMENT THESIS

Development  administration began in 1950’s and till 1960’s  it was the heyday of development administration.

However late 1970’s onward ,shadow of doubt for development administration emerged.The western countries started the path of development assuming and claiming that there was UNDER DEVELOPMENT in these countries and they were to be led on the path of  development administration in order to be MODERNISED which was similar to WESTERNISE.

This approach led to growth of development administration,administrative development and administered development.

In late 1970’s a group of scholar said it was actually COUNTER DEVELOPMENT..and the goals of development administration should be achieved through people’s participation and not western imitation.they gave ALTERNATE DEVELOPMENT model.

In 1980’s world bank further questioned the state led development and need was felt for market supremacy.

This thought became more vocal in 1990’s and it gave rise to the phase of DEADMINISTERED DEVELOPMENT.It was the phase of PARTICIPATORY DEVELOPMENT,PEOPLE CENTRIC DEVELOPMENT,AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT.

THUS DEVElOPMENT ADMNINISTRATION CHANGED ITS PROFILE FROM 1950’S TO 1990’s.

There  has been a group of scholars from 1980’s onward who has been called ANTI DEVELOPMENT(which is more evolved thought of counter development ).They outrightly reject the western model of development administration .They are ANTI that model of development administration given by the west.They are not anti-development per se.They dont object change but that should not be based on western model.It should be indigenous based on each individual and his thought.It is a bottom up approach to development in which imitating the west is outrightly rejected.

    However anti-dev should’nt be mistook for development versus displacement debate. It stands for indigenous development efforts which are more suited for the local mores and hence will find more social acceptability. In that sense it can also be linked to the cultural aspects of a social group; wherein Riggs says that an intrinsic development is more durable as it is associated with cultural transformation as well.

  5. Thanks for sharing this……

    Development leads to destroy our own natural environment, nature and our own culture.
    Finally this will decrease the life time of whole human civilization.

  10. Hi,

    This is great thoughts in here. I know this is rather an old post but I wish you can elaborate on this topic. I am dev worker myself and I have recently realized that anti-development is needed a fact in the field.

    Hope to hear from you soon! Thanks!
