The philosophy and culture of aid

Inquiry

Report published

The International Development Committee have published a report on racism in the aid sector and called on the development aid sector to recognise and tackle racism in its practices. 

The report made a series of recommendations, including:

  • the FCDO should facilitate sector-wide initiatives on improving diversity, equity and inclusion as well as undertake a full audit of pay structures in its own aid contracts;
  • aid organisations should ban all-White recruitment boards and implement other policies to build inclusive cultures and encourage diverse talent to apply for senior roles; and
  • fundraising publicity should stop using pictures of degrading stereotypes. Instead of simply seeking donations.
