This research interrogates the idea of participation in theory and practice in recent development thought, taking Bangladesh's Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) as a case study. The PRSP framework, the latest in the 'prescription series' from two globally influential trans-national monetary organisations, has been operationalised as a condition for their various aid and debt relationships with poor countries. However, at the same time, the PRSP approach purports to be 'country-owned', tailored in each country through a participatory process. Possible contradictions between genuine participation and its imposition as a condition for obtaining debt and aid led this study to investigate whether participation actually enhanced Bangladesh's PRSP process.
