In this episode, Rethinking Humanitarianism co-host Heba Aly speaks with Sarah Margon, director of US Foreign Policy at Open Society Foundations, about the results of the US election.

And how might that foreign policy be different—not only from President Trump’s, but from President Obama’s?

Consent in Development: Stephanie Kimou and Angela Bruce-Raeburn on the CGD Podcast

Stephanie Kimou of PopWorks Africa and Angela Bruce-Raeburn of Global Health Advocacy Incubator join me on the podcast to discuss the impact of the colonization of Africa on development culture, the economic and social impacts of aid workers flooding a struggling country, and a future where development is led by the so-called "beneficiaries" themselves, not by well-meaning foreigners.
