Presentation abstract

The proposed study critically evaluates that the politics of foreign aid in Afghanistan. The study argues that dynamics of foreign aid to Afghanistan are not driven solely by the Afghan political, social and economic realities but much more by the ephemeral political goals of international donor countries. The objective of this paper is to find out the political reality of foreign aid given to Afghanistan in a post 9/11 era. The study analyses the gap between the donor countries’ interests and the Afghan government’s priorities in aid coordination and management. The aid given to Afghanistan has been accompanied by the political interests of the major powers and therefore violated the core principles of humanitarianism i.e. humanity, impartiality, neutrality and independence. This research attempts explaining the areas which are of high priority, extremely vulnerable and have been a neglected part since 2001. The study focuses on how as a result of politicization, the foreign aid could not produce the expected results even after prolong presence of international donors in Afghanistan. The primary sources of this research based on the UNDP report, Government reports of different countries and the Millennium Development Goals report of Afghanistan and interviews with the Afghan Ambassador to India. The secondary sources are collected from books, reports, and documents.
