Filling the "decency gap"? Donors' reaction to the US policy on international family planning aid

Nathalie Ferriere

No 2217, AMSE Working Papers from Aix-Marseille School of Economics, France

Abstract: I study the impact of US allocation of family planning aid on other donors. Family planning provides representative insights into donor interactions. One donor, the US, dominates the sector but has changing policies on family planning due to domestic debates on abortion. Using the Mexico City Policy and exposure to this policy as an instrument, I find that other donors do not react to US policy changes in the short term, but two years later step in accordingly. This suggests that while some donors clearly intend to compensate for US policy, competition and herding behavior still operate; however, this may be mitigated in the short run.
