From humanitarianism to good governance? Reflections on a Danish-Ethiopian aid model

    Research output: Book/ReportReport

    Abstract

    The report reflects on what people engaged in development research and practice mean by 'aid models'. Illustrating the argument is the history of an NGO alliance between Ethiopia and Denmark over the last 10 years. The report argues that 'northern' NGOs are often guilty of imposing new concepts and languages of development aid on their southern counterparts and that this has deleterious effects.
