About this book

The publication of the Assessing Aid report of the World Bank in 1998 stimulated the debate on the future of development aid and aid policies. This collection contains a number of studies that aim to contribute to this debate and concludes that the good governance criterion proposed by the World Bank for distributing aid comes down to introducing conditionality in disguise.


Changing the conditions for development aid - a new paradigm?, Niels Hermes and Robert Lensink; on aid growth and good policies, Carl-Johan Dalgaard and Henrik Hansen; are there negative returns to aid? Robert Lensink and Howard White; aid and performance - a reassessment, P. Guillaumont and L. Chauvet; good governance - the rise and decline of a policy metaphor?, Martin Doornbos; aid illusion and public sector fiscal behaviour, Mark McGillivray and Oliver Morrissey.
