Aid to Fragile States: Do Donors Help or Hinder?

Author

  • Stephen Browne

Abstract

The record of aid to fragile and poorly-performing states is the real test of aid effectiveness. Rich countries can justify aid to fragile states both through altruism and self-interest. But, with some exceptions, donors have appeared at the wrong times and with the wrong attitudes, even sometimes undermining development progress. [Discussion Paper No. 2007/01]
