International development for a ‘Global Britain’: back to the bad old days?

Daniel Willis, Policy & Campaigns Manager at Global Justice Now, will discuss
whether we are returning  to the bad old days of “tied aid”, highlighting the
negative impact this agenda is having on inequality,  the environment and
public services around the world,  and will propose alternatives for what a
more radical, just version of international  development might look like.
