La politisation de l'aide alimentaire d'urgence au Burkina-Faso


  • Marie Poussart-Vanier


[eng] Marie Poussart-Vanier — The politicization of emergency food aid in Burkina- Faso.. In this article, the author draws the context in which emergency food aid is progressively institutionalised in Burkina Faso. Despite the weakness of food aid supply in contrast to the availability of grain at a national level, the decisions related to distribution are a source of strong politicization between government, aid donors and grain traders. Some polemical, albeit eloquent cases, bring to light the controversies resulting from this aid from the viewpoint of its actors.
