1Restructuring the distribution of foreign aid

3practices, several African developing countries have unmasked that the way in which the
4international community deploys foreign aid needs to be altered. As internationally outlooking
5liberals, we have a solemn obligation to take action when foreign countries are in dire need for
6assistance to boost one’s development rates, but we owe ourselves as well as the recipients of
7foreign aid to make the system more efficient and thereby more humane.

    34All donor countries to restructure their foreign aid programmes to be solely based on

  2. 2.

    36A tougher discipline of recipient countries in accordance with the liberal values which
    37constitute the backbone of Western democracy in the forms of e.g. freedom of press,
    38freedom of assembly and LGBTQIA-rights.
