Reviews

“This case study of Poland makes a valuable contribution to the ongoing debates about the concept of development by showing the role of international agencies, aid budgeting and lobbying.” • Suzana Ignjatović, University of Belgrade

Description

Using examples from Poland, Elżbieta Drążkiewicz explores the question of why states become donors and  individuals decide to share their wealth with others through foreign aid. She comes to the conclusion that the concept of foreign aid requires the establishment of a specific moral economy which links national ideologies and local cultures of charitable giving with broader ideas about the global political economy. It is through these processes that faith in foreign aid interventions as a solution to global issues is generated. The book also explores the relationship linking a state institution with its NGO partners, as well as international players such as the EU or OECD.

Elżbieta Drążkiewicz is currently a lecturer at the Institute for Sociology, Slovak Academy of Sciences. She has worked with several Polish development NGOs, as well as with the Solidarity Fund and the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and its Department of Development Cooperation. Her work has appeared in such journals as Human Organization, Focaal, Critique of Anthropology, and Social and Cultural Geography.
