Information

This is the concluding chapter of “The Securitization of Foreign Aid”. It traces trends, explores explanations and speculates on the future of securitization. Drawing on the various chapters in the book, it identifies commonalities and divergences, as well as suggests areas for future research. The authors find that securitization is a common trend across all donor countries examined, though to varying degrees and with different manifestations in terms of rationales, priorities, policies and practices. They argue that there are serious reasons to be concerned about the impact of securitization on foreign aid, even if the level of alarm raised by most of those who have examined the phenomenon in the past has been overstated.
