Abstract. The article presents the post-development school in development theory and deals with its basic lines of argument as well as with criticisms raised against the approach. Encountering these criticisms leads to a differentiation between a neo-populist and a sceptical variant of Post-Development. Subsequently the article discusses the theoretical position of the approach. Finally, the "alternatives to development" promoted here are dealt with and the conclusion argues that Post-Development has massive implications also for the North.
