'Aid is part of a global struggle over values': Tørnæs

Danish Development Minister Ulla Tørnæs has no regrets about politicising aid, in spite of heavy domestic criticism. “If I had not politicised aid, I would not have lived up to the task," she says in an interview with Development Today.
Aid politics is part of a global fight over values, she insists, in particular when it comes to human rights and democracy.
