Non-State Actors Taking the Lead in Global Aid (March 13)

This week's PD News headlines focused on the influence of non-state actors in advocacy and public diplomacy campaigns. Bill Gates, a strong opponent of the Trump’s administration plan to cut foreign aid, met with President Trump at the White House, while Google announced a donation of $50M for twenty education nonprofits over the next two years. Other stories explored a social media campaign that raised $1M to deliver humanitarian aid to Somalia, and on the eve of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, the UN human rights chief urged governments to target hate speech.
