Title
Excluded again : village politics at the aid interface
Author
Abstract
Making use of a rural household survey, we show that in villages with a stronger monopolisation of the aid interface by local elites, households are more likely excluded from all aid. Moreover, these villages have less access to aid but this tends to be insufficient for political alternatives to emerge spontaneously, mainly due to their relatively low visibility in these villages. Finally, if village members themselves manage to bring about a political change, this does not automatically improve the conditions of the most excluded. We recommend aid donors to assume a more active role in searching and selecting community representatives.
