I'm not sure "exploitive" is a helpful description. A better metaphor might be seeing theory building as interpretative ensemble dance by academic practitioners,government practitioners, and civil society practitioners all with leading and supportive roles throughout the performing experience. Each is necessary to the performance that creates theory.
