Political Aid: a Comparative Analysis

  • Gordon Crawford
Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


This chapter contains a comparative analysis of the implementation of political aid by the four selected donors. It is based on a census of all projects supported within this field over a two-year period, not a sample. Therefore the analyses conducted are representative of actual policy implementation, providing information on the distribution of political aid across broad sectors, across countries and regions, by implementers and by beneficiaries. Interesting and significant variations are revealed, as well as some common features. The chapter is in five main parts. First, the methodology is outlined, including the series of hypotheses that are used to structure the analysis that ensues. This is followed by analysis of expenditure by the four categories of: purpose (or objective); region and country; implementing agency; and beneficiary.
