Development, Interculturality & Power

Interculturality involves a dialogue among diverse cultures and the redistribution of power, and in countries such as Peru has most often been discussed alongside intercultural bilingual education (IBE). In this book, Chichizola moves interculturality away from its educational context to explore its practice in the complex negotiation of social development projects. The book provides the reader with a close look at the internal negotiations among scientists, development experts and Quechua communities from London to Peru. Using Actor-Network Theory as an ethnographic approach, the book invites us to reflect on the need to re-politicise the discourse around interculturality.
