Neoliberal idealism, state building, and the Washington Consensus: A story (still) under development


Michael Heazle, Griffith Asia Institute, Australia
October 2007   14 pp   234 x 156 mm  
article   £10.00  

The paper links some of the major events and changes in international relations thinking over the last 30 years - such as the ending of the Cold War, the growing intolerance in the West of human rights abuses, the emerging doctrine of conditional sovereignty, and the recognition of trans-national threats by states - to demonstrate: i) that the Washington Consensus list of development principles, originally identified by John Williamson, has been co-opted into an ideological vision for reshaping and homogenising the behaviour of states (both internally and externally); and ii) that doing so has resulted in a failing attempt at 'securitising' international development, which has led the US and its allies into a security and development 'dead end'.
