In the lattermost third of the 20th century, alternative development (AD) began to employ participatory and human-centered modes of research and operations as a response to the negative effects of colonization and mainstream development. While AD has always had a reciprocally supportive relationship with academic research, more recently, AD programs have become an integral component of Western higher education operations, syllabi and apparatuses. Although this new partnership presents opportunity for many, fresh scholarship is unravelling and critically examining the complexities and logical inconsistencies this relationship presents. This research employs sociological lenses that account for this new partnership’s corresponding neo-imperial networks of power to challenge its radical claims to fostering decolonization, emancipation and the reversal of western hegemonic domination. Indeed, AD’s authentic potential to assist in anti-colonial or -imperial struggles may now be nullified, as its new relationship with higher education ensures these struggles remain operationalized from within the very geo- and body-political epistemic location that they seek to counter and transcend. It may be the case that this new partnership is the latest strategy of the modern/colonial global imaginary, as it incorporates both strategies aimed at its resistance and alternative Indigenous imaginaries into discursive schemas to ensure its own perpetuity and expansion. In turn, AD’s knowledge production has become instrumentalized by actively foreclosing upon systematic critiques pointing to this possibility.
