about

The first extended analysis of selectivity policies of important bilateral and multilateral aid donors, this book combines a policy-analytical with a quantitative-empirical approach.

Bringing out the conflicts that may exist between foreign assistance agendas and the desire of governments in developing countries to set priorities for their national development policies, the author:
