Foreign Aid: Is it helping?
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ursula Moore.
Dr Robert Calderesi and Red Cross activist Ajay Malajawe discuss the drawbacks of providing overseas aid. Formerly with the World Bank, USA -based Dr Calderesi recently published the much acclaimed ‘The trouble with Africa’, and he will highlight some of the significant problems long term aid creates. Turning then to the short-term impact of aid, Mr Malajawe will assess the pros and cons of the immediate disaster-relief work of the Red Cross and similar organisations.
This talk will highlight some of the down sides of the West’s “altruism”, and will be fascinating for anyone considering volunteering, campaigning or even donating to aid agencies.
