Foreign Aid in Ghana

In this project Professor Sohrabji is studying the impact of foreign aid on Ghana’s growth.

The benefits of aid are fiercely debated in economic development literature. The debate has influenced policy agendas in the development works with implications for economic development in poorer countries. The outcomes of this project will contribute to this important policy debate. The researcher will estimate and analyze the role of aid and its related policies (called conditionality) with a targeted focus on an individual case study, Ghana.

By analyzing the role of aid and conditionality over a changing economic and political environment in Ghana as well as in the global aid community she will examine the conditions under which aid can be effective.

This project is supported by the Simmons University Fund for Research.
