Abstract

Under multistakeholderism, private philanthropic foundations have played an increasingly influential role in global development. As part of which, foundations have promoted what we call “privatization creep” i.e., mainstreaming market-centric solutions to development. Sidelining redistributive approaches altogether, “privatization creep” favours profit-making over everything else, doing little to “save the world”.
