Unintended consequences of aid

Successful international interaction and cooperation in negotiating peace processes or reconstructing fragile states is imperative to international stability.

With aid just one of many elements in the international effort, we consider aid and resource flows to countries and regions requiring intervention.

With the increased spotlight on regions currently caught up in, or emerging from, conflict, as well as post-conflict societies, we are researching into the unintended consequences of aid. From humanitarian aid to peacekeeping forces, we consider the long-term impact of these economic and human resources and the often problematic response by the local population to exploitative or corrupt personnel, institutions and systems.
