Pulling the purse strings: Are there sectoral differences in political preferencing of Chinese aid to Africa?
Kinesiology & Health Sciences
China is emerging as an increasingly important player in the global development space, but may be less bound to compacts that aim to curb political preferencing and therefore may produce less yield in terms of impact toward Sustainable Development Goals. This research tests the hypothesis that the disproportionate aid allocation to the birth regions of the current African political leaders that applies to some sectors more than others.
