My book, The Globalization of Foreign Aid: Developing Consensus, will be published by Routledge in December 2017.
The book explores how aid agencies have been shaped by external influences to adopt incredibly similar policy priorities and approaches. I show how these external influences interface with individuals and a series of micro-level social processes and mechanisms operating within aid donor agencies to yield common outcomes across diverse donor contexts.
With one case study on donors and gender equality, and another on donors and security-sector reform, the book offers both quantitative macro-level and qualitative micro-level evidence to defend my claims about how the globalization of foreign aid has occurred and why it matters for the aid sector going forward.
