Disrupt Development Podcast: ShiftThePower
The call to change the balance of power in development cooperation is getting louder and louder. It is time for more local ownership of the global agenda. The development community has been talking about this for decades now, but what has changed? In this new Podcast series of Disrupt Development Alexander Medic unpacks the #ShiftThePower debate with great minds.
In this #3 episode of the #ShiftThePower series together with Robert Wiggers they talk about dependency in development aid. What changes development aid has gone through in the past 30 years, how local organisations have internalized the priorities of Northern-led organisations, why we need to go back to the roots of development aid and how we need to Change the Game.
Robert Wiggers is the Deputy Director of Wilde Ganzen. He is also the founder and driving force behind Change the Game Academy. Robert is an historian and having worked for more than 30 years in development aid he is strongly convinced that we need to change the game.
