Will long-term poverty reduction fail under the Tories?
There is an article running on the Guardian website analysing the contradiction at the heart of Conservative international development policy. It looks at the emerging schism between traditional Conservative values on aid and the ring-fenced budget; as well as between an increased focus on security and the alleviation of poverty.
LCID has run several articles on worries over the increased militarisation of aid as well as Conservative spending priorities. We will continue to scrutinise the Government’s actions.
It is well worth a read.
