N2 - Efforts to incorporate ‘political thinking’ into policy-making and practice in OECD-DAC development agencies have increasingly focused on the use of ‘political economy analysis’ (PEA) frameworks and “tools”. While recognizing the fundamental value of promoting politically-informed programming, this article nevertheless highlights how contemporary efforts to this end have largely ignored another central development agenda: the ownership paradigm. Emphasizing the highly donor-centric nature of PEA design and methodology we explore critiques and justifications of this state of affairs, ultimately arguing that donors would benefit from embracing a more flexible and context-specific understanding of ownership.
