The FAOâ s Use of Fear and Forestry as Tools of Neoliberal Economics
MetadataShow full item record
Academics have challenged the FAOâ s description of West African forests and have found that, in many cases, the FAOâ s attempts to provide generalizations and recommendations over large regions do not adequately reflect the economic and geographical diversity of the region. Current academic literature challenges the representation of West Africa, and the environmental discourse of international development. I find that even critics of environmental discourse do not adequately challenge the underlying neoliberal assumptions that motivate the FAO. I propose that critics must further distance themselves from the assumptions inherent to international development by incorporating economic philosophy into their critique.
