Canadian born, Gwilym David Blunt is a PhD candidate at University College London’s School of Public Policy. His thesis, entitled “Transnational Philanthropy, Justice, and Domination,” argues that, despite their good intentions, philanthropic NGOs and foundations exercise power over the world’s most vulnerable persons in a way that raises a problem of justice. Consequently, there is a need to regulate and reform these organisations so that they empower those whom they seek to help. This project is part of his broader interest global poverty, transnational justice, and practical philosophy.
