Abstract

This article analyses power in international development cooperation through environmental policy integration and the World Bank in Dhaka, Banglasdesh. It proposes an alternative account that reveals a will to power among the international development community, realised through the construction of knowledge. This approach suggests that that the primary motivation for the will to power is relational power at the international scale. It is concluded that the narrative generated through our hybrid analytical perspective demonstrates the usefulness of multi-theoretic approaches and offers a useful extension to the analytical purchase of governmentality
