Abstract

The UK and other donor countries spend considerable time and resources advising developing countries how to improve government performance. But monitoring what then happens on the ground is costly and, in the case of the UK’s Department for International Development, it has not been strikingly effective. LSE’s Stephen Kosack explores how local organizations in recipient countries can often be far more effective at monitoring government performance and advocating for improvements.
