Foreign aid, fragility, and governance

UNU-WIDER / Oct 2013

Fragile states—which have low state capacity and often high levels of poverty—are home to one-third of the world’s poor. In this animation we look at how foreign aid helps building stronger, more accountable states. The film is part of a series produced by UNU-WIDER on the project ‘ReCom–Research and Communication on Foreign Aid’. It can, for instance, be used when teaching students about what aid can achieve.
