What limits the impact of foreign aid programmes? If frontline workers had freedom to experiment could aid effectiveness be improved? What in the aid bureaucracy and political environment constrains flexibility?
Prof David Hulme & Nicola Banks lead this exciting discussion with ESID’s Pablo Yanguas, author of new book 'Why we lie about aid' and Daniel Honig of Johns Hopkins University, author of new book 'Navigation by judgement: why and when top down management of foreign aid doesn’t work'.
The Effective States and Inclusive Development Research Centre is a global partnership investigating the kinds of politics that promote development. Funded by DFID, our research spans 16 countries and we have research partners in Bangladesh, Ghana, India, Malawi, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda and the USA. ESID is deepening the understanding of governance in the developing world in ways that impact on policy and practice so that people’s lives and livelihoods are improved. We are helmed at the Global Development Institute, Europe’s largest global poverty and inequality institute.
The Global Development Institute is the largest dedicated development research and teaching institute in Europe, led jointly by Professors Diana Mitlin and David Hulme. The results of the most recent Research Excellence Framework ranked GDI first for impact ranking in Development Studies in the UK, with many of our researchers deemed to be 'world leading'.
