No wp-2022-139, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: While there is extensive literature examining the growth and development effects of foreign aid, very little attention has been paid to its potential impact on social mobility. Thus, this paper provides the first empirical evidence on the effects of foreign aid on intergenerational educational mobility in Africa.
