An Introduction to Integral International Development
A download link will appear in the files tab on your account page after checkout.
In this article I introduce Integral Theory, a multiperspectival approach, to international development and explore its capacity to foster conditions for systemic, collective, and personal change. My analysis focuses on the perspectives of “I,” “We,” and “It/Its,” which illuminate interior and exterior aspects of individuals and groups; in Integral Theory, these are known as quadrants. Here, I describe the way each quadrant relates to international development and offer some methodologies to work with phenomena and dynamics arising in each quadrant. At the end, I give an example of an all-quadrant development intervention in Peru.
