This article deepens considerations on the "philanthropic governance" process in England, through analysis on the structure and practices of philanthropic organizations, their discourse, connections, ideological influences, and agenda for change. The research's methodological outline is referenced in the "ethnography network," a new approach which combines the Social Network Analysis (SNA) tools with traditional ethnographic methods. The data reveal processes of materialization of a "new global governance regime" where the discourse around education and development have the effect of turning populations economically useful and politically tame to the dominant global interests. Despite of the apparent novelty, the motivations and activities of the new philanthropists are not in essence different from the old forms of "cultural imperialism."
