AID Policy

Research Group

Lifecycle:1 Jan 2006 →  31 Dec 2012
Organisation profile:TG Aid Policy members have varied but complementary research backgrounds and geographical expertise. They share an interest in the "new aid architecture" that arose around the turn of the millennium and that has led to the 2005 Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness. The major focus is on macro aspects of aid such as the use of selectivity and ex post conditionality, the increased attention to institutional and governance issues, gender, the involvement of civil society as a process conditionality, the use and modalities of budget support, and the macroeconomic challenges of scaling-up of aid to Africa. Several members also have a keen interest in the methodological and institutional aspects of monitoring and evaluation of aid, which provides another useful angle to study the new aid architecture.
