Beyond the headlines: UK public opinion on aid and development
Debates on public attitudes to aid and development remain in the headlines and broad support for UK development efforts can no longer be taken for granted. The financial crisis and ensuing spending cuts continue to impact on public opinion.

There is also some evidence of growing scepticism about the effectiveness of UK aid programmes (and, indeed, of aid in general). But how much is really known about public opinion trends and why people hold the views they do?
This public event seeks to look below the surface of public opinion, and to take stock of the current evidence base, drawing on both the latest opinion polling and new ODI/IPPR qualitative research. With a panel of researchers and campaigners, it will ask what are the implications of this research for how to communicate aid and development issues and where do we go from here?
