|Title:||Aid and governance: Negative returns?||Authors:||Brazys, Samuel||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/7156||Date:||2015||Online since:||2016-10-16T01:00:29Z||Abstract:||Recent literature has come to little consensus on the impact of aid flows on governance in recipient countries. This article adds to the debate by developing a theoretical and empirical argument to help resolve the contradictory claims. The article suggests that the aid–governance relationship need not be linear, but rather, that aid may simultaneously improve and hinder governance. This relationship might be akin to an aid–governance 'aid dependence' Laffer curve wherein 'too much' aid can lead to counter-productive results. Inserting non-linear aid terms in established techniques for examining aid and governance reveals significant support for the potential of negative returns in aid and governance.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Palgrave Macmillan||Journal:||European Journal of Development Research||Volume:||28||Issue:||2||Start page:||294||End page:||313||Copyright (published version):||2015 European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes||Keywords:||Aid; Governance; Growth; Corruption; Development||DOI:||10.1057/ejdr.2014.77||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
