CHF Hosts Ethics in Development Seminar
Should development look at the root causes of global inequality, or simply address its symptoms? What is development’s role in violent conflict and militarism? How should international development agencies conduct their fundraising activities?
These questions, and many more, are addressed by the Code of Ethics, published by the Canadian Council for International Co-operation (CCIC). As the Code was recently re-approved and adopted by CHF’s Board of Directors, CHF continues to work towards higher and higher levels of ethical understanding and practice.
In October, CCIC’s Anne Buchanan visited CHF to provide an interactive seminar on the Code of Ethics. Through problem-solving activities and group discussions, CHF staff gained a more profound understanding of the Code and how it can be applied to CHF’s work — both in the field and right here in Canada.
