En finir avec la dépendance à l'aide

Ending Aid Dependence

Developing countries reliant on aid want to escape this dependence, and yet they appear unable to do so. This book shows how they may liberate themselves from the aid that pretends to be developmental but is not.

This timely book cautions countries of the South against falling into the aid trap and endorsing the collective colonialism of the OECD – the club of rich donor countries. An exit strategy from aid dependence requires a radical shift in both the mindset and the development strategy of countries dependent on aid, and a deeper and direct involvement of people in their own development. It also requires a radical restructuring of the global institutional aid architecture.
