November 2017

ASI profits continue to grow

Latest accounts from Adam Smith International1 show the company’s profit margins continue to grow despite it having been centre of a scandal in which it was accused of exploiting documents leaked from DFID and attempting to falsify evidence to a parliamentary enquiry. The Commons international development committee said the company's behaviour was "deplorable" and "entirely inappropriate."2 As a consequence the company had any new contracts frozen.

The UK government is the second largest funder country, after the US, for research and development (R&D) in diseases that predominantly affect poor countries. Across all areas of health R&D, the UK government spent £2.3 billion on health R&D in 2015 alone.

Big Business Britain - How corporate lobbyists dominate secret meetings with Brexit negotiators in London and Brussels

August 2017

Brexit negotiators in London and Brussels are far more exposed to business interests than the concerns of civil society. Official statistics, analysed by Corporate Europe Observatory and Global Justice Now, reveal that Brexit ministers in the UK had six corporate lobby meetings for every one with civil society groups. For the EU’s Brexit taskforce, headed by the Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier, the figure is three corporate lobby meetings for every one civil society group meeting. Big Finance and agriculture interests dominated the lobby meetings held in both London and Brussels.

Re-imagining UK aid - What a progressive strategy could look like

July 2017

For over a decade a consensus has existed at Westminster on overseas aid, with the mainstream political parties all backing the 0.7% spending target. Achieving this consensus was a considerable achievement. But the focus on how big the aid budget is has prevented a robust debate over how this money should be spent, what it should be spent on, and why.
