Time to Decolonise Aid!

June 2021: This month the Movement for Community-led Development focused on the Triple Nexus of Peace, Humanitarian Response and Development.

Time to Decolonize Aid is a new report that emerged from a three-day online consultation with 158 activists, decision- makers, academics, journalists and practitioners across the globe. Participants and guest contributors exchanged insights and local experiences on the current power dynamics and imbalances that exist within the humanitarian, development and peacebuilding sectors.

They discussed how structural racism manifests itself in their work, and how they envision a decolonised system that is truly inclusive and responds to their needs.

Presenting the report as our featured speakers were founding MCLD member Peace DirectDylan Mathews, Chief Executive and Shannon Paige, Scoville Peace Fellow.
