Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)

Abstract

The article interprets inquiries as cultural devices through which the complexities of North/South interactions can be analysed. It builds on postcolonial critiques of these interactions, examining the role of inquiries in light of current debates about ethnocentrism. It focuses on an inquiry into poverty and development in southern Africa. The spatial genealogies of knowledge can be traced, together with the diverse modes and relations of power on which inquiries are based and that they also serve to produce.
