Hard Dilemmas of International Aid: How Do We 'Do No Harm' Both to Ourselves and Those We Help?

Location

Palmer Hall
1025 N. Cascade Ave. (east of Tutt Library) (map)

Description

A Discussion with Suzanne Kratzig

Government restrictions, donor priorities, cultural challenges, media pressures, voluntourists—aid workers face these and other obstacles daily. As their industry expands, how do aid workers offset their professional ambitions with their underlying moral obligation to “work themselves out of a job” while ‘doing no harm’ to themselves and those they aid?

 

Drawing on her experiences working in Haiti, Mali, Benin, and other countries, CC grad and international aid worker Suzanne Kratzig (class of 2000) explores the dilemmas of working within the aid industry.
