Description

It is over 50 years since International Aid started gushing into Africa under the tutelage of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. Several Billions of dollars have since been invested in Africa under varied nomenclature, but why is Africa still wobbling under the albatross of underdevelopment and financial burdens? Was the September, 2009 Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Initiative a patent tribute to the failure of development aid? Whose interest does development aid serve? Will the trumpeted MDGs provide the panacea? What is Africa's way out? Challenged by such provocative concerns, Prize McApreko confronts development aid, and walks the path less walked to probe the impact of current IMF/WB development aid models and their conditionalities/policies on the Human Rights of beneficiary countries. Using Ghana as a case study, and providing alternative tools for appreciating development aid, this book targets scholars, politico-socio-economic analysts, researchers and all those interested in social development dynamics.This book does not denounce development aid but questions the models and conditionalities that characterize contemporary development aid.
