Perspectives on International Aid in Conflict Affected Countries
Arthur, Lore
Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, v41 n5 p699-702 2011
For many, 1 March 2011 is a significant date. On the one hand, it was the day that David Mitchell, the international development secretary, presented the key outcomes of two major reviews on international aid to the Houses of Parliament; and on the other, 1 March was the date chosen for the simultaneous launch of the 2011 Global Monitoring Report (GMR) "The hidden crisis: armed conflict and education" in 10 countries across the globe, including the UK. The Europe-wide launch took place in London and was combined with the GMR Colloquium organised by the UK National Commission for UNESCO (UKNC) and United Kingdom for International Education and Training (UKFIET). All three events had as a theme, albeit from different perspectives and for different purposes, international aid to some of the world's poorest and most fragile countries. In this paper, the author shares her views on international aid in conflict affected countries and points to just a few of its key strands. (Contains 1 note.)
