The Aids chain: Coercion & Commitment in Development NGOs
The Aid chain presents three country case studies looking at the chain of aid money from donors in the UK, to UK NGOs, to partners and field offices in Uganda and South Africa, and how they use and account for their funding. The book examines how far local strategies and projects are influenced by changing donor policies and other external forces, and how far by internal imperatives. The book therefore presents a range of findings of direct relevance and importance within each country context, and others that are more directly applicable.
