The Aid Industry - what journalists really think


As the aid industry comes under increased media scrutiny, this briefing paper (for IBT members only) hears from a range of journalists working in press, radio, TV and online, and explores their personal opinions about NGOs and aid.

Some of this report gives cause for concern but our aim in publishing it is to enable NGOs to respond more effectively to media criticism in the future. The report is essential reading for all media officers and others involved in communicating to the media. We shall be organising a series of events to promote discussion of the report’s findings.
