S'approprier les politiques de développement : nouvelle mode ou vieille rengaine ? une analyse à partir des expériences du Burkina Faso et du Rwanda

Since 1999, programs supported by the IMF must align with a poverty reduction strategy designed by government. However, this prerequisite of ownership, that sounds like a major reorientation, was also present during the preparation of Structural Adjustment Programs, but difficult to reach. Based on experiences in Burkina Faso and Rwanda, this article analyses the practice of designing macroeconomic frameworks with the IMF. It shows that the IMF teams favored standard diagnoses and policies that were barely adapted to the specificities of the country, disregarding local settings and rejecting programs elaborated by the governments – even as a basis for discussion.
