The Aid Triangle Summary

The Aid Triangle: Recognizing the Human Dynamics of Dominance, Justice and Identity by Malcolm MacLachlan

The Aid Triangle focuses on the human dynamics of international aid and illustrates how the aid system incorporates power relationships, and therefore relationships of dominance. Using the concept of a triangle of dominance, justice and identity, this timely work explains how the experience of injustice is both a challenge and a stimulus to personal, community and national identity, and how such identities underlie the human potential that international aid should seek to enrich. This insightful new critique provides for the reader an innovative and constructive framework for producing more empowering and more effective aid.

The Aid Triangle Reviews

'This book is a most welcome addition to the growing call to rethink this whole dimension of international relations.' John Berry, Queen's University in Canada. 'This approachable and imaginative book takes a very different look at the practice of International Aid. Written by social scientists with considerable experience in the area, it offers not only a critique of current practices but also advice about how really to help those who need it. It is written with passion and clarity but always supported by the scientific literature in the area.' Professor Adrian Furnham, University College London 'At last! A book that addresses the psychological politics braided through civil society, governmental and multilateral agencies involved in aid. I highly recommend it.' A.K. Dube, African Decade for Persons with Disability 'A thought-provoking book that poses key questions about the nature and mechanisms of development.' Alastair Ager, Columbia University 'This book places justice - between individuals, between organisations and between countries and international organisations - at the heart of international aid and development; explaining its relationship with dominance and identity in a challenging, authoritative and engaging way.' Mary Robinson, Realizing Rights: The Ethical Globalization Initiative
