Aid Summary

Aid: Understanding International Development Cooperation by Poul Engberg-Pedersen

This benchmark study by two leading authorities on international development cooperation argues that taxpayer-financed aid remains the best mechanism for promoting greater equality between North and South and within the countries of the South. Therefore it should be continued while at the same time being made more effective and efficient, and the authors present ideas to achieve this. They conclude by examining new modes of financing development and new modes of international cooperation aimed at bringing about growth and human development. This major study - replete with detailed statistical and factual information, comprehensive in scope, and penetrating in its analysis - is likely to stand as the authoritative account of international aid for many years.

Aid Reviews

Gerry Helleiner, Distinguished Research Fellow, Munk Centre for International Studies, University of Toronto 'This is a call on donors to improve their programmes, rather than spending time on justifying budget cuts.' Poul Nielson, EU Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid 'This book offers an excellent introduction and overview to the complex and often changing field of foreign aid.' Carol Lancaster, Director, Masters of Science in Foreign Service, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University 'This is an up-to-date intellectual guide through the complex maze of issues and debates on foreign aid and development.'
