Full description for Modernizing Foreign Assistance
The United States' foreign assistance programme has become an instrument of declining efficacy in foreign policy. The ebbing of Soviet-American competition offers an occasion to restructure US foreign policy objectives and modernize those instruments most likely to support the execution of new foreign policy objectives. This book sets out to identify new approaches to the management of resources in the foreign assistance programme that would permit the flexible manipulation of these resources to cope with the fast-breaking pace of international affairs. This work challenges the generally accepted view of contemporary political realities by explicating the historical roots of the current foreign assistance programme and identifying a new approach to foreign assistance through changes in resource management statutory authorities and procedures. It should be of interest to professionals and scholars in foreign affairs, foreign policy, and international relations.
