This is a speech I delivered earlier today at the Crossroads Europe Conference on EU Migration and Asylum Policy and the Public Debate organised by the Union of European Federalists.   Thank you, Union of European Federalists for organising this important discussion today.

Elite corruption in Uganda is through the benefaction system which has been aggravated by foreign aid. Aid has [...]

This country is not normal
