Abstract

This special edition shows that development is complex and contentious in terms of the ways it presents itself to those defined as outside the traditional target areas, from child sponsors, non-governmental organization (NGO) supporters and campaigners, to international volunteers, ethical consumers and the news consuming public. In particular, we focus on the ways in which the public faces of development play a central role in mediating connections between the ‘southern poor’, development organizations, and northern individuals.
