Development Organizations Assessing Potential Relationship Between Aid, National Security Under Trump Administration

Devex: If Trump ties aid to national security, will NGOs stand on principle?
“…On one hand, development organizations want it known that they contribute to U.S. national security by supporting stability in unstable parts of the world — and that Congress should fund them to do so. On the other hand, organizations working to fight poverty and save lives don’t want to be seen as just a ‘soft power’ tool at the Pentagon’s disposal. Some fear the next administration will make that balancing act even more difficult…” (Igoe, 12/15).
