Résumé
This thesis analyzes the neoliberal governmentalities of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and how they shape the policies, practices, and perceptions of poverty within the context of Namibia and its Vision 2030 policy. Within this field, I emphasize that the techniques of partnerships, responsibilization, and benchmarking aim to shape particular spaces, and the individuals occupying them, and achieve millennial development targets and goals. These neoliberal techniques guide the actions of the poor and shape ideas of poverty and poverty reduction, as well as legitimize the interventions of development and government institutions designed to manage the lives of the poor. The ability for national and international actors to mold certain individuals into selfregulating subjects is a crucial aspect in transforming social relations in the region and in understanding the strategies and activities associated with Vision 2030 and the MDGs
