Description

The dynamics in the international system have led to aid policy shifts from just relief assistance towards attempts to support development in emergency situations. Aid Policy in War-Torn Countries deals with the dilemma of whether development can be pursued in conflict situations and how it can and should be done. The importance and interest of the research rests essentially on its apparent paradoxical character. Author Mafalda Duarte divides the research into two parts. The theoretical focuses on identifying the dynamics of the new international system leading, and arguments supporting the shift in terms of the aid paradigm from just relief assistance towards attempts to support development in emergency situations. Part two, the empirical, uses the opinions and arguments of the Angolan population sample to determine whether they believe in the possibilities and ways of pursuing development in Angola while in a conflict situation. The window left open at the end of the research relates to the importance of analyzing the implications of the increasing number of non-nation-state intermediaries for all types of development cooperation.
