In both policy and practice, the field of ‘development ‘ remains crowded in terms of actors, ideas, strategies and theories, and its meaning is shaped by the wide and varied socio-economic, cultural and political backgrounds of individuals and groups in the development arena.

Therefore, the field of development is in constant flux with implications for both policy and practice. This book brings together a collection of essays that discuss the varied aspects of development thinking and practices using Ghana as a case study.
