Enfants Sans Frontières. Une perspective alternative pour penser l’aide extérieure à l’éducation

Alain Mingat

Revue d’économie du développement, 2019, vol. 27, issue 1, 113-150

Abstract: While part of the discussions on external assistance to development aims at improving the individual circumstances of the children (for them to be educated, immunized, protected?), concrete actions are generally conducted, for practical reasons, through relationships between aid agencies and the recipient countries. Disjunctions may then result between the generic intents and the concrete realizations (with possible equity problems, in particular if coordination between aid agencies is ?not perfect?). The paper identifies the individual needs in the education sphere of (all) the children of a fictitious territory regrouping various (9) countries (needs being assessed independently of the country of residency). It is then possible to confront the needs of each of these countries with the actual amount of external assistance in education they get, providing then elements of evaluation of the global machinery of international aid to education.
