Meaningful mobilities refers to locally meaningful social, economic or other change. This chapter explores the concept in relation to international development, here conceived as an exercise of power. First, I discuss how meaningful mobilities helps us think through the conundrum we regularly face as communication scholars working with development organisations in relation to having always to emphasise the difference between communication and information. Second, it helps us to think about why arguing for the prominence of contextualised meanings is a worthwhile argument to pursue. Third, it can be used as a lens for examining the cognitive determinism of development frames which impose dominant logics and rationalities.
