Devex Examines Foreign Aid Platform Of New U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May

Devex: What DfID appointment and new PM’s voting record tell us about ‘May-era aid’
“…With the exception of the Girl Summit, [British Prime Minister Theresa] May has rarely taken a stand on aid-related issues, and little is known about how May’s aid agenda compares to former Prime Minister David Cameron’s relatively aid-positive platform. Her voting record yields a few clues: ambivalence toward climate and emissions regulation as well as the Sustainable Development Goals; disinterest in accommodating refugees and aiding in the migrant crisis; and complete silence on the U.K.’s commitment to spend 0.7 percent of gross national income on aid…” (Anders, 7/15).
