Abstract
In order to better understand the dynamics involved in emergency food aid programs, this paper analyzes the case of Kinshasa (1992-1995). The interaction between local health personnel engaged in the programme and the-potential, legitimate, and unintended - beneficiaries of the aid is central to this paper. The classical concepts of moral hazard and adverse selection, often cited in the current literature on target poverty programs, only partly capture the reality of the situation on the ground. An intervention such as a food aid program should bejudged on its capacity to open up spaces of action and negotiation to actors who traditionally occupy only marginal places in them.
