Beyond Economism: Globalisation, Development and Culture

Dr Eve Coxon.

The geopolitical changes of the last two decades of the 20th century led to global shifts in perceptions about how ‘development’ should be defined and how it could best be achieved by those states on the periphery of the global economy. This paper argues for a concept of ‘development’ which is not reducible to either economism or culturalism; one which accounts for the articulation of local and global, particular and universal and which posits ‘culture’ as the foundation for development.
