A sceptical public and hostile media attitudes

Bondcast episode 1

Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Since revelations of sexual exploitation by charity workers broke earlier this year, the media has referred to a crisis of public trust in NGOs.  At Bond, we’ve encountered an array of perspectives and research on the relationship between media attitudes and the British public’s growing cynicism towards international development. Are these negative stories eroding public trust? Or is there a more complex, threatening storm of public perceptions brewing?

On the first episode of the Bondcast, our media manager Maryam Mohsin interrogates these questions with three experts from the across the sector: Amy Fairbairn, head of media and communications at Mercy Corps, Jessica Abrahams, associate editor at Devex, and Tom Silverman, partner at Humankind Research.
