A Framework for Thinking Through Reduced Aid Dependence in Africa
This paper suggests a framework for analyzing aid dependence, particularly in Africa. It argues that aid dependence, and not necessarily a low volume of assistance, is the major problem. It considers the context of the micro-institutional mechanisms of aid delivery, and the context of the macro-dynamics of aid. It proposes specific institutional remedies, and sets out questions that country specific analyses of aid dependence should attempt, to answer.
