About the show

Dangerous Ideas in Development 'Making the Case for Aid: the Challenge of UK Public Perceptions' 9 February 2010

Speakers: Spencer Henson, Research Fellow at IDS; Paul Mylrea, Director of Communications, Department for International Development; Sarah Woods and Cathie Mahoney at Comic Relief.

Aid budgets face immense pressure – despite the explicit commitments of the world’s industrialised countries to the Millennium Development Goals. With the world economy in a major downturn, the stakes for developing countries could not be higher. Public support for international development and aid will play a key role. Will the public become unsure about the UK’s aid budget when they begin to feel cuts in government expenditure at home? How well equipped are we to ‘sell’ the UK’s aid programme to a sceptical public in times of economic austerity? A panel of speakers will discuss these issues and look at ways of making sure development stays high on the public’s agenda.
