E. Kwan Choi - International Review of Economics & Finance, 2004 - Amsterdam, Netherlands

The real value of official aid flows fell for much of the 1990s, and private capital flows to low-income countries remain mostly limited. The decline in aid flows may endanger the development process, since they finance much of the development budget in many poor countries. However, while aid in...

– Appraisals and Issues
Matthew Odedokun - Palgrave Macmillan, 2004 - Basingstoke, UK

– A new application with an emphasis on Papua New Guinea

– Issues, Approaches and Results
Mark McGillivray - UNU-WIDER, 2003 - Helsinki, Finland

There is a widespread view that political criteria have received less emphasis in aid allocation since the end of the cold war, with a greater share of aid subsequently being based on developmental criteria. An observed increase in aid effectiveness is attributed to this shift. A reasonably large...

To accomplish this, we propose a model framework...

Studies of the inter-recipient allocation of aid may be categorized threefold. First, there are those which attempt to explain the observed allocation of aid.

Working Paper pdf
Matthew Odedokun - UNU-WIDER, 2003 - Helsinki, Finland

The study seeks to identify donor-specific factors that cause donors to delay aid disbursement, and to apply a double standard in dealing with the non-compliance of a recipient with regard to aid conditionalities, a practice that promotes uncertainty in the receipt of aid. Annual panel data over...
