An international development policy that works

Type: Reports Written by Sam Bowman | Tuesday 20 April 2010

In An international development policy that works: Why the Conservative Party should rethink its commitment to development aid Sam Bowman argues that the UK Conservatives have failed to propose the radical policy overhaul needed to make the Department for International Development (DFID) an effective body. He suggests scrapping the pledge to spend 0.7% of national GDP on international development aid each year, and focusing instead on private donations, economic migration and unilateral tariff reduction.
