Aid and authoritarian regimes in Africa

Almost half of Africa’s top aid recipients are ruled by authoritarian regimes. Even if democracy and human rights are on international donor’s agenda, in practice, their development policies help maintain political status quo. Tobias Hagmann and Filip Reyntjens are editors of ‘Aid and Authoritarianism in Africa’ that sheds light on the relationship between foreign aid and autocratic rule in Africa.
