Porqué los donantes bilaterales intermedian la ayuda a través de una multilateral y no directamente?

Este trabajo maneja un panel tradicional y regresiones bilaterales con un bilateral-par, efectos fijos para modelar las decisiones de asignación de ayuda. Los resultados confirman que la política es importante para los donantes bilaterales pero también la fragmentación de la ayuda y el comportamiento estratégico afecta la asignación de ayuda. Las multilaterals solucionan problemas estratégicos y de coordinación entre los donantes y, mientras la política juega un rol significante, hay evidencia de un atenuante de este efecto
