AidData and World Development

In November 2011, World Development will publish a special journal issue featuring new research that relies upon AidData as its primary source of aid information. The special issue represents an effort to study aid allocation and aid impact with new evidence that was previously unavailable. It will feature twelve articles from scholars such as Homi Kharas from the Brookings Institution and William Easterly, author of The White Man's Burden. These articles included in the special issue explore a wide variety of topics, such as benchmarking donor transparency practices, the effectiveness of health and education assistance, and aid's impact on violent armed conflict.
