The ethical analysis of state funding, as carried out by the Foundation, is a tool supporting Handicap International’s independence of action. Not to lose any of its relevance, this tool has to be dynamic and contextualized, in particular when used in situations of armed conflict. The changing nature of conflicts – as illustrated by the Syrian or Iraqi conflicts nowadays – indeed highlights the necessity to continuously question ourselves. Besides, it is our duty, within the Foundation, to further the improvement of the safeguards Handicap International put in place to ensure its independence of action. The goal? To make sure it can face more and more politicized contexts.

In January 2017, the Foundation thus went over Handicap International’s policy as regards state funding in an article published on Influence&Ethics, a blog managed jointly by the Foundation and HI’s Advocacy Unit. To read this article and learn more about this issue, click here.
