Example text

Levin and Dollar (2005: 22–23), for example, argue that aid to MICs is likely to be more variable than aid to LICs for two reasons. First, geostrategic and political interests – which are more prone to change from year to year – are likely to trump poverty reduction objectives in donors’ decisions to allocate to MICs. And second, MICs are at a higher risk of balance-of-payments shocks, meaning donors are likely to be exposed to more risk in these countries than in LICs. In terms of ways forward, it is worth continuing to clarify and question some of the core assumptions that underpin mainstream approaches to aid effectiveness.

Aid effectiveness as we currently understand it has been prominent since the beginning of the 1990s (Forster & Stokke, 1999). The idea of aid effectiveness, and much of the debate surrounding it, is embedded within a broader developmental paradigm, or framework, that can be described thus: [D]onors commit themselves to providing specific support for a national poverty reduction strategy in the form of financial and technical resources to boost national capacity, while the recipient government commits itself to improving economic and political governance in order to implement the strategy.

They find that each of the ‘big three’ donors allocate large chunks of their aid to strategic allies (the United States), former colonies (France), or in ways highly correlated with UN voting patterns (Japan). They also report a clear trend for ‘democratisers’ to receive a substantial increase in aid. Further, as Wood (2008) points out, despite its influence, in practice aid allocations have diverged widely from the Collier-Dollar model, with more aid allocated to Africa than some have recommended.
