Crisis or transition in foreign aid

Books or book chapters
May 1994

Has the end of the Cold War caused a crisis in official aid, already beset by budgetary cuts, challenges on effectiveness and so called 'donor fatigue'? Or is the problem specific to a few donors, while others move ahead with more constructive policies, stronger and broader-based public support, and larger programmes? This Special Report assesses the current position in ten of the leading donor countries (UK, USA, Canada, Japan, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Denmark) and looks to the future role of foreign aid.
