#AidToo: Where do we go from here?
Monday 15 October 2018, 7pm-8.30pm
TW2 9.04, Tower 1, LSE
In the context of sharp criticism of the UK aid sector for failing to tackle sexual abuse perpetrated by workers overseas, and in advance of a Charity Commission report and likely recommendations from the Department for International Development, a panel of practitioners and scholars will consider some broader questions.
How do different sectors and disciplines understand the scope of the #AidToo movement?
Can we – academics, practitioners and policymakers – push for change inside organisations whilst also pursuing accountability?
Could a broader perspective enable other interlocking forms of violence and abuse – such as racial and sexual harassment of LGBTQI and ethnic and racial minority aid workers within the aid sector – to be addressed?
