New WINGSForum 2014 report from Baring Foundation's David Cutler!

Posted By WINGS, Thursday, June 12, 2014
WINGSForum 2014 is still making waves! In this Alliance magazine conference report, David Cutler of Baring Foundation recaps our flagship event held in Istanbul:

"The fact that the Forum was held in Istanbul was a powerful reminder that foundations are part of civil society rather than standing aloof from it. The notorious decision of the Turkish president to ban tweeting made tweeters of the most Luddite of us, to make clear that we don’t like being banned even from those freedoms that ordinarily we don’t value very much, such as speaking truth to power in 140 characters or fewer."
