Foreign Aid Policy
This course focuses on foreign aid policy, not only from the perspective of donor countries, e.g. Canada, but also from the standpoint of recipient countries. It aims to understand how foreign aid policy has had so limited results in half a century. We will explore the roots of foreign aid policy, its plurality of theoretical perspectives, the motives of donor countries and those of recipient countries. We will also analyze the role of multilateral and regional organizations, as well as the involvement of NGOs and community organizations.
