This study focuses on Western and non- Western donors who provide foreign assistance and the conditions under which they effectively exert influence on the policy priorities of public- sector decision- makers in low- income and middle- income countries, finding that recipient states generally do not exhibit a preference for donors who share their regime type and economic policy orientation. Democratic, freemarket states, however, are an important exception to this rule.
