Introduction: The Volatility of Overseas Aid

Ales Bulir (), Alan Gelb and Paul Mosley

World Development, 2008, vol. 36, issue 10, 2045-2047

Abstract: Summary Evidence is mounting that the pattern of overseas aid through time, of which its volatility (or instability) is a key dimension, has an important influence on its effectiveness. The three papers in this Special Section examine the extent of this influence, and how it may be possible to control volatility in the interests of more effective aid.
