Focus has a chat with Dr Eilish Dillon, exploring some of the ideas,
assumptions and practices underpinning much of the work of the
international development sector in Ireland and elsewhere.
We explore the problematic and artificial divide between community and international development that has evolved over times.
Eilish shines a light on the way that the language of international development and ‘social justice’ can disguise power imbalances and lead to choices of actions around change, that are much less effective than they might seem.
