Contract law in aid channels [dataset]


This research into contracting in development aid offers a unique opportunity for exploring the boundaries of, and new approaches to, the function and utility of contract and contract law. By framing aid effectiveness as a contractual problem ­ in some ways similar to contracting in commercial arrangements such as networks, franchising, and even trusts, with many related thematic lines, this research takes a critical step toward promoting aid effectiveness. It adopts an innovative, pluralist approach, adducing relevant threads of contract and organizational theory, such as relational contracting, incomplete contracting, and organizational learning theory in its empirical analysis of contracting in development aid.
