While the enhanced aid resulting from security concerns and the manner of its delivery does suggest certain shifts in the way hegemonic powers deal with the majority world, there are also powerful continuities in the legitimating discourses, goals and interests served by this re-articulated relationship between development and security. In this short introduction to the four papers we set out some brief thoughts on the historical lineage of current debates and outline their underpinning logic before setting out some of the key ways in which international development has become more deeply implicated in these
strategic concerns.
