Abstract

Governments spent billions of dollars on democracy assistance across the world. Yet, we know little about in which political contexts such funds are well spent. Qualitative research has shown that several contextual factors shape the impact of democracy aid on democratization. Existing large-N studies tend to investigate average effects of democracy aid, but do not specify contextual conditions for the effectiveness of democracy aid (e.g. Finkel et al 2007). This panel welcomes papers investigating context-specific challenges to democracy aid and its impact.
