Overview

High levels of economic growth have transformed the countries of Northeast Asia from aid recipients to aid donors. Foreign Aid Competition in Northeast Asia explores this transformation and its implications for economic development paradigms, policies, and practices. By being the first authors to look holistically at the countries in this region, Kim, Potter, and contributors address the dynamics, potential, and tensions of the aid programs of China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. What motivates these northeastern Asian countries to embark on aid programs? Do their policies represent new approaches to foreign aid and poverty alleviation? Does aid from these countries reinforce or disrupt the emerging consensus within the international community on aid policy harmonization and coordination? These are among the questions answered in this edited collection. Students, scholars, and practitioners in international development will find this book to be a valuable reference guide for years to come.
