The Development Dilemma podcast

The Development Dilemma


Lets talk about the elephant in the room: the world of international development is run by two actors, expats and nationals, who don't seem to talk. They work in the same organisations with similar goals but expats fly in and out carrying a sense of superiority and nationals become disgruntled and disillusioned with their work. Where development is ultimately about people, this lack of strong relationships and local knowledge means that much aid leads to little impact. But we can do better, so let start to talk! Follow on Twitter: @dev_dilemma and Instagram: thedevelopmentdilemma This podcast brings together interesting voices to have honest and empathetic conversations on development dilemmas like hiring and pay practices; beneficiary voice; race dynamics; the history and role of aid and the impact of it all. Subscribe to hear concrete real life examples of what's going wrong but also the potential for more collaborative, democratic and, ultimately, impactful work.
