This book examines learning processes and how they contribute to development. Explaining theories of learning and social learning, it describes the many difficulties individuals and organizations encounter in bringing about change for development. Examining the roles of power and conflict in learning, it analyses the relationships between individuals and their organizations, as well as the wider context that affects them. Case studies based on the authors' own research in Africa and Europe present a diverse range of development actors and contexts, typical of many situations practitioners face. Finally, the book offers conceptual/theoretical reflections that enable an analytical approach to development while also proposing models and ways of thinking of practical use to readers.
