My research is an account of a particular transformative learning journey where I narrate and analyse my development practitioner experiences in Nepal from 1990 until now. I interconnect micro, meso and macro perspectives and identify epistemological tensions that arise in development practice. Firstly, I look at this from the neoliberal demand for global standardization, rather than allow responsiveness to the unpredictable and ‘unique’ local contexts. Secondly, I focus on how dilemmas arise as the neoliberal principle of individualisation demands conformity, which challenges the adult learning notion of individuation.
