GJN Report Focuses on ‘Privatised Aid’

GJN report warns that free-market consultants in Britain are taking hundreds of millions of pounds ring-fenced to alleviate poverty in the developing world, as the government continues with its agenda of privatising aid.

A damning report has warned that free-market consultants in Britain are taking hundreds of millions of pounds ring-fenced to alleviate poverty in the developing world, as the government continues with its agenda of privatising aid.

Conducted by British non-governmental organisation, Global Justice Now (GJN), the study raises grave concerns over the sheer amount of aid money the Department for International Development (DfID) has given to consultants Adam Smith International (ASI) for overseas aid projects.

Titled ‘The Privatisation of UK Aid’’, the study found that ASI has won a minimum of £450 million (about US$640 million) in aid-funded contracts over the last five years and DfID funnelled almost £90 million of its budget through the consultancy firm, more than the total amount given to human rights and women’s rights groups.
