Global development governance in the 'interregnum'.

  • Academic Journal
  • Review of International Political Economy. Jun2022, Vol. 29 Issue 3, p904-927. 24p.
  • Global governance is widely perceived to be 'gridlocked', 'unravelling', and 'unfit for purpose'. The legitimacy of old institutions is breaking down, yet new institutions struggle to establish themselves as viable alternatives. Though overlooked, global development governance is no exception. Heterogeneous development actors, approaches, and understandings increasingly characterize the field. However, attempts to create a common platform have foundered. This article contributes to a growing body of literature that depicts world order as a Gramscian 'interregnum' to account for the crisis facing global development. Its primary contribution lies in the examination of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation as a vantage point to explore the politics, dynamics and struggles over the means and ends of 'development' in the current conjuncture. Here, competing projects vie for influence, yet none command the support necessary to supplant the 'old' order. Although this article finds that the condition of 'interregnum' will likely persist, it also explores what transformative elements of a possible future exist within present practices.
