The Donors’ Dilemma: Emergence, Convergence and the Future of Foreign Aid

Guest Edited by Andy Sumner and Tom Kirk

The Donors’ Dilemma: Emergence, Convergence and the Future of Foreign Aid

 

As poverty declines, what if the remaining pockets of poverty are increasingly focused in countries where aid is already on the way to becoming irrelevant as domestic resources grow - such as some middle income countries - or in countries which cannot absorb aid easily and quickly – meaning many fragile states?

This is the question addressed by contributors to Global Policy’s first e-book entitled ‘The Donors’ Dilemma: Emergence, Convergence and the Future of Aid', guest edited by Dr Andy Sumner, Co-Director, King’s International Development Institute, King’s College London, and Tom Kirk, Researcher at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
