dc.descriptionKnowledge in development has been perceived as a one-way commodity that developed nations could bring 'down to' the level of 'developing countries'. Sharing knowledge is generally seen as a North-South operation. This vertical approach to knowledge in development echoes the vertical approach to development in general, whereby knowledge is perceived as an ingredient of the technical assistance given by those who have it to those who do not. However, no organisation can offer social transformation or knowledge sharing if it is not itself engaged in an internal learning process that systematically questions certainties, authorities, and decision making. Learning is a complex process of acquiring knowledge, both within the organisation that facilitates social change and among the subjects of and partners in social change.<p>This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.</p>en
