Power in aid relationships: A personal view

Published on 1 November 2006

This article is about the operation of power in relationships between people working in the complex web of organisations involved in the giving and receiving of international aid. Intuitive reactions to the racial inequity I observed as a young child in post-colonial Africa suggest my subconscious interest in power relationships began long ago.

However, it is only recently, while reading and reflecting on my experience as a development practitioner during a return to study that I have come to frame my understanding of such inequity more formally in the language of ‘power’.
