Foreign aid and South-South cooperation: emerging powers as donors

This paper examines how South-South Cooperation is positioned in foreign policy agendas of the emerging powers in the Global South, with a focus on India, and how this is bringing drastic changes to the international aid regime. Emerging donors are tending towards fewer conditionalities, recipient-defined criteria, and are argued to have a greater edge on understanding the needs and constraints of developing countries as aid-recipients, as simultaneously recipients and donors themselves.
