ODI Fellow Reflects On U.K. Labour Party’s Development Strategy, Vision For International Development

ODI: Reflections on Labour’s new vision for international development
Andrew Shepherd, principal research fellow at ODI and director of CPAN, discusses the U.K. Labour Party’s development strategy and vision for international development and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Shepherd writes, “Labour should be challenged to consider issues around the quality of growth, and the challenges of generating secure, quality employment with appropriate wages and working conditions. Similarly, women’s economic empowerment, agriculture, and the informal sector also need to be more directly addressed” (3/26).
