The Privatisation of UK aid

March 2016

After decades of work by campaigners and activists, in 2015 the UK enshrined in law a commitment to spend 0.7% of its national income on international aid to tackle poverty around the world. But behind the scenes, this has been a lucrative time for aid-funded business.

Gated Development - is the Gates Foundation always a force for good?

January 2016

Every January, Bill Gates sets out his vision for a better world and the role the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation can play in achieving this in an annual letter to us all. With assets of $43.5 billion, the foundation is the largest charitable foundation in the world. It is arguably the most influential actor on issues of global health and agriculture, and distributes more aid for global health than any government.

The UK’s support of the growth of private education through its development aid

October 2015

Private actors are playing an increasing role in education in a number of countries worldwide andin particular in developing countries. The growth of private schools, including the emergence and rapid expansion of so-called “low-fee” private schools that target relatively poor populations, has led to a de facto privatisation of education systems in these countries over the past 15 years. More recently, some school models, in particular for-profit low fee private schools are being actively supported by States.

A call on the next leader of the Labour Party to redefine Britain’s role in the world

September 2015

The Labour Party leadership election has generated a debate in British society, not merely around personality, but also around values and politics. The powerful notion that ‘there is no alternative’ to the way our current economy and society is organised has been challenged. The policy of austerity has been confronted, inequality has been raised as a defining problem of our times and the erosion of democracy has been critiqued.

Why we are taking action for Greece, and other questions

June 2015

The bailouts which Greece was given have not benefited the people of Greece one bit. They have flowed into the European banks that recklessly lent the country money. Meanwhile, the financial speculators who created Greece’s woes are actually making large profits by gambling on this ongoing crisis.

We have joined a coalition of organisations in taking action against Greek debt and an end to the enforcing of austerity policies that are causing injustice and poverty in Europe and across the world.

Putting people first - Annual Review 2014

June 2015

Across the world billions of people do not have the resources they need to live decent lives, such as food and water, energy and housing. This is poverty, and it cannot be separated from inequality, the erosion of democracy, discrimination and oppression and the injustice that runs through our own society in Britain.

Profiting from poverty, again

April 2015

The introduction of universal education, the increasing length of compulsory education, the creation of comprehensive schools, the foundation of the NHS – these are some of the greatest social achievements we have ever made in this country, and we remain rightly proud of them. The aid budget could be used to help others to achieve these vital components of a decent society where every life counts.

General election 2015

Key issues to raise with your local candidates

Election time is upon us. Traditionally, this is a time where policies get reduced to soundbites and the debate is limited to a narrow political choice between several rather similar visions of the world. This state of affairs is not inevitable. We can influence the debate by pushing forward issues that we’ve campaigned on and asking candidates to address them. This briefing is to help you get some real answers out of politicians on the issues relevant to Global Justice Now when they knock on your door this election.
