Decolonising Thinking & Practice of Volunteering for Development IVCO 2021 Think Piece

This piece by Bianca Fadel of Northumbria University challenges academics and practitioners to reconsider our notions of volunteering and development, and our assumptions about the ways volunteering offers a pathway to development. It challenges us to ask ‘what sorts of volunteering lead to what kinds of development and for whom’, and proposes models of ‘supportive solidarity’

It is part of a series of think pieces published in advance of IVCO 2021, Inclusive Volunteering for Global Equality.
