Aid and Humanitarianism: a Critique

Aid&Humanitarianism_Essay_Delux
Click on the above link to open or download the essay. I wrote this as part of the course I’m on, and I think it might be of general interest. International aid and humanitarian interventions: maybe they reinforce inequality rather than reducing it. If so what?
This is the ‘deluxe’ version of the essay. 🙂 There were a few interesting passages I had to remove, to get it under the word-count limit for university essays, but I’ve put them back in for this version. Enjoy! And I’d be really interested in anyone’s comments.

Need to Learn

Where will all the Poverty-Eradicating ideas come from?  Some of them will come from here – University of Manchester.  I’ve signed up for an MSc in International Development starting in September.  Karen spent all day yesterday helping me learn my way: from Oxford Road railway station to University Place, to the other buildings where I’ll be studying, back to the railway station, back to campus, inside the buildings, out again, etc. etc.  Poor Karen.  Thanks & well done.
