This month Madeleine Clarke, Executive Director of Genio addresses 'the meaning of solidarity in an age of austerity' in Alliance, a publication for philanthropy and social investment worldwide.

She discusses how solidarity provides philanthropy with the opportunity to move beyond benevolence to identifying with the experience of those who need our support as they face many and varied challenges.

"Whether you are committed to providing a better response to refugees, tackling educational disadvantage and youth unemployment, ending homelessness, creating a more sustainable environment or helping to eradicate poverty and famine – human solidarity is the prerequisite for doing things with people rather than to or for people", she writes.

The Alliance special feature, guest edited by King Baudouin Foundation’s Stefan Schäfers, explores the complex and sensitive relationship between philanthropy and solidarity.
