Human Rights and the Distribution of U.S. Foreign Aid

Abstract

In contrast to the findings of other studies, the authors conclude that human rights play a significant and substantive role in determining the distribution of U.S. foreign aid. They find that the foreign aid program relates aid to the need of recipient nations, rewards nations for furthering human rights, does not discriminate on the basis of race or religion, and responds to national security interests of the United States. The finding that the program does what most people assert it should do provides a new explanation for the rigidity of distributions over time. Copyright 1993 by Kluwer Academic Publishers
