IDC Inquiry into Racism in Aid

It’s been an interesting week so far for government inquiries. The one we’ve had our eye on is the International Development sub-inquiry into racism in the aid sector, part of the broader inquiry into the philosophy and culture of aid.

An overview from Will Worley in ‘FCDO must consider how UK aid cuts hurt people of color, advocates say’, gives insight into the session’s highlights. However, we recommend that anyone interested in understanding the links between colonialism, aid and racism to check out the full inquiry (linked here) during their lunch break, and hear some fantastic women of colour talk succinctly and frankly about the issues at play.
