  This edited volume advances existing research on the production and use of expert knowledge by international bureaucracies. Given the complexity, technicality and apparent apolitical character of the issues dealt with in global governance arenas, ‘evidence-based’ policy-making has imposed itself as the best way to evaluate the risks and consequences of political action in global arenas. A Foucauldian approach to discourse, power and governmentality is better able to capture the way in which the good governance discourse legitimises the operationalisation of a liberal form of power. The good governance agenda must be placed within the broader context of development discourse.
