History of Aid to Laos

Motivations and Impacts

History of Aid to Laos is the first comprehensive study of development assistance to the aid-dependent country of Laos. The book investigates the situation of a country dependent on foreign aid for more than half a century and the ways in which donor nations have shaped its development and political relationships through the aid process.

After decades of foreign aid, Laos is left with a continuing dependence on development assistance, a status as one of the world’s Least Developed Countries (LDC), and a host of new and old problems such as human trafficking, drug addiction, lack of human resources, and environmental degradation.

About the Author
