    Abstract

    This article argues that adopting a critical historical perspective can enhance our understanding of development education (DE) today. Drawing on a genealogical approach which emphasises power relations, it focuses on discursive and institutional influences which have helped to shape different and contradictory understandings of DE in contemporary Ireland.
