Publication Date :

This study on international development cooperation is a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of aid, including the impact of the end of the Cold War. It reviews the motives, goals, strategies and practices of donor agencies and NGOs in North and South; examines emergency relief and humanitarian assistance as new modes of intervention; analyses the international debates on aid impact and effectiveness; and shows that aid has proved more valuable in recipient countries with coherent development policies and strong political institutions. The authors argue that there is no better alternative to taxpayer-financed aid as a mechanism for promoting greater equality. They present ideas for making aid more effective and efficient, and examine new modes of financing development and of international cooperation.
