Dilemmas of Foreign Aid in Post-Conflict Areas

Claude Berrebi, Véronique Thelen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


One of the primary whole-of-government instruments for stability and reconstruction (S&R) operations is foreign assistance. However, social-science research reveals serious uncertainties and disagreements about the role and effectiveness of aid; it also raises what can be seen as recurring dilemmas, or at least tensions. This chapter attempts to synthesize the related literature and clarify selected issues, primarily for the purpose of informing government officials concerned with S&R.
