About this book

Demonstrates that relief and development aid are very distinct processes, and without public policy-making authorities, aid becomes highly fragmented, often inadequate in scale and incapable of building local sustainability for particular programmes. The international aid system, the author concludes, faces real dilemmas and remains ill-equipped to respond to the peculiar challenges of quasi-statehood that characterise chronic political emergencies and their aftermath.


Introduction and overview; aid, war and the state - 1945 - 1989; aid beyond the state - the emergence of a "new" aid orthodoxy; the context of recovery - an overview of war and its impact in Cambodia, Ethiopia and Uganda; aid in a vacuum - the legitimacy dilemma; the sustainability dilemma.
