Development theory is about how positive change in society can be shaped and managed. However, one chooses to define development: the processes of development in human societies always involve the organisation, mobilisation, combination, use, and distribution of resources in new ways; it is a historical change process (Kothari 2005). This process is fundamentally political. Because resources are being produced and distributed in different ways, decisions must be made by individuals and different social groups about how such resources are to be used. The presence of power in these (non-)decisions means that development is inescapably political rather than managerial or administrative (Leftwich 2000).
