Abstract This article emphasises the importance of recognising the existence of different knowledge constituencies in the development context. In particular, it demonstrates how local knowledge about democracy and democratic development differ significantly from expert knowledge of the same topics. A brief account of USAID’s MISONGA project serves to illustrate the dire repercussions that this schism can have for Western-driven development initiatives.
