An 'entire divorce' of an idea - Tammam Aloudat on the Decolonisation of Humanitarian Aid

In the webinars 'The decolonization of aid' KUNO, Partos, and The Institute of Social Studies (ISS) take one step back and approach the discussion on the decolonization of aid in a series of talks. Step by step, we highlight an aspect of this debate. We ask two experts to engage in a conversation with one another to explore the controversies and perhaps find some common grounds.

This podcast is the recording of the ‘superb’ (as indicated on Twitter) opening statement of Tammam Aloudat (Director Global Health Centre).

Aloudat: ‘Decolonisation could be an entire divorce of the idea that someone has a real idea of what is better for the other’.

The full webinar with Aloudat is available under the title Decolonisation of aid: Dialogue #3 – a humanitarian aid perspective.
