Aid, education policy, and development

Miguel Niño-Zarazúa ()

No wp-2015-135, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: This paper discusses the recent history of education aid policy. It highlights an important shift in policy thinking in the international aid architecture that has dominated the global education aid agenda since the early 1990s. It argues that Rawlsian principles of social justice, human rights perspectives, and advancements in economic theory that emphasize the role of human capital in development have been central in that process.
