Future features

Every issue of Alliance magazine includes a 30 page in-depth special feature on a pressing topic in philanthropy.

September 2022: Decolonising philanthropy
The word ‘decolonisation’ was coined to describe the withdrawal of colonial powers from territories they had occupied. What forms have decolonisation practices taken among foundations? Should philanthropy be making reparations? And what significance does decolonisation have for philanthropic institutions when they are geographically distant from the former colonies? These are among the questions to be explored in the next issue of Alliance. Guest edited by Shonali Banerjee, Centre for Strategic Philanthropy, Cambridge University and Urvi Shriram, Indian School of Development Management.

December 2022: Crisis, reaction and resilience
A takeover by the Taliban in Afghanistan, a coup and an earthquake in Haiti, the shuttering of civil society organizations in Uganda, the far-reaching impacts of a global pandemic and the Ukraine invasion. How should funders combine emergency response with more sustained support? These and other emergencies have spurred peace, security, human rights and disaster response funders to work together to prepare better for crisis and build resilience. This special feature reports on new collaborations, materials and resources and what good preparedness means for philanthropy and the people it serves.
