Foreign Aid in the National Interest: Promoting Freedom, Security, and Opportunity

Read the book online.:

This book is intended to "inform and focus international development assistance - looking back over five decades of work and looking ahead to future challenges. Written primarily by leading development scholars and academics outside USAID, including Larry Diamond of the Hoover Institute, Michael Porter of Harvard, Peter Timmer of University of California-San Diego, and Carol Adelman of the Hudson Institute, the report reconfirms the critical link between national security and foreign assistance. It lays out the scope and nature of the development challenges we face in the next 10 to 20 years. While it is not a policy document, it does include recommendations on how foreign assistance can adapt to meet future challenges more effectively." Chapter titles: "Promoting Democratic Governance," "Driving Economic Growth," "Changing Health Needs," "Mitigating and Managing Conflict," "Providing Humanitarian Aid," and "The Full Measure of Foreign Aid." US Agency for International Development, 2002.
