Aid and development: Where we are, how we got here, and where it might all go
This webinar will begin with Professor Myles Wickstead setting out how notions of aid and development have evolved since the end of the Second World War, and how they relate to broader international political and economic dynamics.
The presentation will consider how the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) reflected the world order of the 1990s, and how the Sustainable Development Goals reflect shifts in the balance of power and an increasing recognition that issues like climate change and pandemics can only be addressed through global cooperation. It will consider progress so far and prospects up to 2030 (not least reflecting on the implications of coronavirus and the growth of populism and nationalism).
Dr Nilima Gulrajani will respond to and build on the presentation. She will suggest traditional DAC norms of donorship are directly challenged by several domestic and international forces, resulting in some notable convergences between Northern and Southern development providers. Consideration will be given to the fallout of such convergence for the future of Official Development Assistance as a political construct and a policy target.
