  • On Help, Advocacy and Power Imbalances
    Mar 30, 2015

    ‘So did you help the people there?’ It is a question that many people in The Netherlands asked me whenever I told them about my research project in Korail slum. Although this well-intended inquiry about the impact of my fieldwork seemed harmless enough, the question started to get on my nerves after a while. Partly because the honest and unequivocal answer was ‘No’. No, I did not help the people ‘there’.

  • Targeting and Fine-tuning Change
    Mar 19, 2015

    How to find a middle ground between destructive cynicism and shallow feel-good philanthropism? It is a question I grappled with ever since I started a degree in development studies. My choice for this subject was driven by a deep-rooted indignation over the grave inequalities that so perversely divide the world we live in. On the one hand I desperately wanted to believe that good intentions mattered and that, unitedly, we could bridge the cracks of injustice.

  • In a Country Well Governed…
    Mar 11, 2015

    The Chinese philosopher Confucius once said: “In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of!” Clearly, there is an unmistakable relationship between governance and poverty. For, the act of governing ultimately relates to the distribution of wealth and opportunities.
