GOVT 335
Fall 2024
Section: 01  

Who gives and gets foreign aid, and does it work? This course will study how international and domestic interests interact and affect the causes and consequences of foreign aid. We will cover scholarship on 1) the motivations behind foreign aid, 2) the evidence on aid effectiveness, 3) how domestic politics in donor governments and recipient governments shape and are shaped by foreign aid, 4) other actors in the aid landscape, such as international and non-governmental organizations, and 5) how aid relates to conflict, democracy, trade, and migration. This is a reading, discussion, and writing-based seminar.
