Radicalism in Development: Mechanized or Strategic Ploy?
(Sept 26, 2008)
A leading development personality once coined the phrase 'feminization of poverty' with singular impact and incisive insight. We have come a long way, it seems. Does the use of enforced shifts and strains reach a point of resolution or culmination?
We live in a radically globalized world. Radical in the use of recalcitrant idioms and values though it may appear, the injection of urgency is well thought out. The time is always ripe. More often than naught, the means and methods at hand require fine-tuning.
In seeking a more direct approach to many of the problems that surface in the Development Agenda and vie for its attention, we have been successful in helping to transmute key concerns through levels and layers of strong reproach. The tide turns every once in a while and, thus, we have before us the essential problem laid bare with very little accoutrement.
