Good Money after Bad: Why is Australia continuing to pour money into the UN’s refugee efforts in Palestine?

August 23, 2019 | Ahron Shapiro

Australia, which is one of UNRWA’s largest donors per capita, should consider joining its European counterparts in suspending its $20 million annual contribution to the agency, and instead investigate other channels to deliver a core package of humanitarian aid services for those in need
