‘Don’t give a goat for Christmas. The aid system does not work.’

This event has already taken place.

Host: Intelligence Squared in partnership with Google+
Location: Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler's Wells, Rosebery Avenue, London, EC1R 4TN
Speaker: Intelligence Squared 'Versus' Debate

Following mega-debates on the war on drugs and hip hop culture earlier this year, Intelligence Squared continues its Versus series of debates in partnership with Google+. 

We'll be examining foreign aid in our debate 'Don't give a goat for Christmas. The aid system does not work.' Does the current system of mega-aid create dependency and foster inequality, or should we laud the large-scale programmes for their success in halting disease and helping to lift the bottom billion out of poverty? Our audience will decide. Make your voice heard, either by joining us at Sadler’s Wells or online via Google+ and YouTube.
