Although the foreign aid enterprise is a multibillion dollar industry that is active worldwide, there appears never to have been a successful common law negligence action brought in respect of personal injury occasioned by a foreign aid scheme. In this paper, I discuss the first such case of this kind which is imminently to reach the House of Lords: Binod Sutradhar v. Natural Environment Research Council. Background is supplied on the contemporary foreign aid enterprise, and its relation to the principles of negligence, using Sutradhar as an explanatory vehicle.
