In the paper, we propose a theoretical framework that tries to characterize and understand capacity development processes oriented to the promotion of a critical development practice. It is what we call capacity development for emancipatory social change, an approach that faces the tensions between reformist and critical views of development management.
From this framework, we explore a postgraduate university programme in development management, with two aims: first, to carry out an inquiry of the programme as a capacity development process in the training of critical development practitioners; second, to discuss the suitability of the framework for understanding similar capacity development processes.
