Webinar: State-To-State Or Bypass?

See the EBA webinar on differences in donor countries’ ways of channeling aid to recipient countries:

Why do some donor governments channel their aid through recipient governments, while others bypass such authorities?

Listen to Simone Dietrich, who in her new book “States, Markets and Foreign Aid”, argues that the bureaucratic institutions of donor countries shape donor–recipient interactions differently, despite similar recipient country conditions. With Sweden as one of her cases, she demonstrates how internal beliefs and practices about states and markets inform how donors set their objectives for foreign aid and international development.
