Beyond Poverty Porn - the Individual Changemaker Despite various strides made by the global development sector in reforming its communication, humanitarian campaigns still (too) often contain racial stereotypes, dehumanizing images and colonial narratives. In our Beyond Poverty Porn series, which we make together with Emiel Martens and Wouter Oomen from the Expertise Centre Humanitarian Communication (HuCom), we open up the conversation about ethical, respectful, and inclusive communication in and on global development. In short episodes of about 15 minutes each, Martens and Oomen will take a critical look at trending genres within the field of humanitarian communication. Following their critique on celebrity humanitarianism in the previous storycast, in this episode they zoom in on the popular genre of the individual changemaker. While they see the value of the shift in agency that changemaker stories seem to represent, they do find several issues with the &apos;individual solutions to structural problems&apos; habit of these campaigns.

Beyond Poverty Porn - Celebrity Humanitarianism Despite various strides made by the global development sector in reforming its communication, humanitarian campaigns still (too) often contain racial stereotypes, dehumanizing images, and colonial narratives. In our Beyond Poverty Porn series, which we make together with Emiel Martens and Wouter Oomen from the Expertise Centre Humanitarian Communication (HuCom), we open up the conversation about ethical, respectful, and inclusive communication in and on global development. In short episodes of about 15 minutes each, Martens and Oomen will take a critical look at trending genres within the field of humanitarian communication. Following their general critique on the &apos;new&apos; approach of hope-based communications in the previous storycast, they now zoom in on the challenges of celebrity humanitarianism - i.e. celebrity involvement in humanitarian issues and the media coverage that this creates. They do so by first discussing the colonial tradition of white saviorism and then by approaching the celebrity humanitarian as a white savior who unavoidably but problematically takes center stage in stories of the suffering of global Others.

He poses the challenging question: are we willing to fundamentally challenge the powers that be, to produce meaningful change that is uncomfortable and possibly threatening to some people? About Keith Slack: Keith is EarthRights International’s Director of Strategy and Campaigns.
