What is it about Norwegians and aid satire? First Jan Egeland, then Africans for Norway and now this. Let’s Save Africa: not quite up to the standards of the other two, but well worth a watch (and better than answering your emails). Friday fun c/o @johanhermstad.

  1. I would find quote from Brian Scott’s “Conspiracy of Modernity: The Tragedy of Colonial Enlightenment” very appropriate here:
    “It is our postcolonial questions and not our answers that demand our critical attention. In my view, an adequate interrogation of the present (post colonial or otherwise) depends upon identifying the difference between the questions that animated former presents and those that animated our own”
    It was interesting listening to you at ODI the other day…Thank you!
