The Politics of Bilateral Donor Assistance (Draft)



This paper looks at the role that bilateral aid plays in influencing the policy making processes of developing countries in the context of this surge. The paper uses quantitative and qualitative analysis to explore patterns of aid allocation, both across countries and sectors, and examines the dynamics of aid relationships in three case study countries in order to shed light on the mechanisms used by donors to promote their development agendas.
