About this book

Provides a wide ranging and in-depth examination of the prevailing development assistance paradigm of western developed countries. Browne argues that far from being altruistic, bilateral development assistance and programmes are motivated by donor self-interest. Increasingly donor countries are pursuing their collective agenda through the criteria for aid receipt of good governance, human rights and anti-terrorist stances. Browne then goes on to propose changes to the current aid delivery structure to deliver aid to those who need it not those who receive it as a result of the benefit to the donors.

Contents

Media reviews
'This powerful critique of aid by a distinguished practitioner cannot be brushed aside. As Browne argues, doubling aid without radical redesign is unlikely to deliver accelerated development. He offers an attractive recipe for reform.' Paul Collier, Professor of Economics, Oxford University 'Stephen Browne provides a radical and original take on a familiar subject, with careful analysis and drawing on a wealth of personal experience ... Readable stuff, destined to make those in the aid business think harder.' Sir Richard Jolly, Institute of Development Studies, Sussex 'The book is excellent, laudable, readable and an accurate diagnosis of all that is wrong with aid. It should be essential reading for students and for anyone who still thinks that donors really are doing their best for poor countries' Development and Change, Vol. 38, No.3, May 2007
