Gasper, Des (2007). "Thinking about development ethics Denis Goulet and choices in methodology, activity and organization" Paper presented at the 4th annual conference of the HDCA, 18-20 September 2007, New York, USA.

The paper looks at aspects of Goulet’s work in relation to four issues concerning the project of development ethics, and compares his views with subsequent trends in the field. [1] Scope – what does it cover? [2] Methodology - here Goulet espoused a process-oriented, practice-centered, locality-specific approach rather than an elaborate generalized theoretical model. [3] Roles, and possible lines of influence, including through incorporation in methods, movements, and education. [4] Organisational format and identity, as a subdiscipline or an interdisciplinary field.
