Forward features

Below you can find information about upcoming issues of Alliance including special features and guest editors.

September 2019: Human rights
The rise to power of populist regimes, growing social and economic inequalities, and the dismantling of international norms mean that human rights are facing a backlash. Emerging technologies provide both new risks and opportunities. What should philanthropists do to protect the gains of the past 20-30 years and build a movement fit for the future? This issue will look at the role of human rights philanthropy in finding new ways to empower marginalised people and groups through economic, social and cultural rights alongside civil and political ones. Guest edited by Julie Broome of Ariadne, Carola Carazzone of Assifero and John Kabia, The Fund for Global Human Rights.

December 2019: Feminist philanthropy
Debates about power, diversity and equality, and social movements like #MeToo are focusing attention on philanthropy’s role in mainstreaming gender issues, supporting women’s rights and the representation of women in philanthropy itself. This special feature will examine the sector’s commitment to gender equality and the coherence, impact and potential of philanthropic support for women’s rights around the world. Guest edited by Ise Bosch of Dreilinden and Ndana Bofu-Tawamba of Urgent Action Fund Africa.
