Making foreign aid work for development.
GEG’s Governing Aid initiative was established in 2005 with a view to exploring the ways in which better governance of foreign aid can improve development outcomes. The three core objectives of the project are:
1. To conduct and foster research into the organisations that comprise the global aid system, with a view to improving global aid governance, particularly from the perspective of recipient governments
2. To create and maintain a network of scholars and policy makers working on these issues
3. To influence debate and policy in both the public and the private sector in both developed and developing countries
The project draws on researchers with expertise in public policy, international relations, political science, development studies, public management and international law, among other areas.
