Moreover, if the IFIs’ power hinges on their role as gatekeepers of funding, what happens to the power of the IFIs when developing countries can access credit independently from other sources without the need for gatekeepers to facilitate financial flows into their economies? Clearly, the answer to this question is that developing countries augment their space for autonomous decision-making and thus their power of contestation. In fact, home-grown ideas and policy paradigms find a more fertile ground to nurture policy-making the more independent of external funding this becomes.

In agreement with the critical analysis in IPE, this study suggests that power emerges out of the ensemble of relations and configurations of networks of actors within a political and economic context and concomitant ideologies. As such policy change should be analysed as multiple spaces of contestation in which competing interests, incentives, material and ideological capabilities affect policy outcomes. Yet, spaces of contestation can also become areas of policy engagement and even platforms for the local actors to dispute the global rule.

According to Cox, ideas are powerful resources that combined with material capabilities can lead to institutional change and thus to the materialization of forms of governance consistent with dominant models in the global political economy. Ideas, therefore, are key political drivers that can help secure the grounding of rules in domestic arenas. Ideational power, from this point of view, relies on the capacity of ‘rule makers’ to promote ideas that become accepted as ‘common sense’, or ‘a generic mode of thought’ (Gramsci 1971: 330).
