As part of Foreign Affairs‘ featured Reading Lists, John Gershman rounds up a list of books, reports, journal publications, and websites for “What to Read on Foreign Aid. ” Included in his list, Gershman cites MFAN as “the leading coalition of organizations in the United States working to reform U.S. foreign aid in line with a more strategic approach to development policy in general.”
A professor with New York University’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, Gershman’s list includes the Commitment to Development Index, put out by MFAN partner the Center for Global Development, The End of Poverty by Jeffrey Sachs, The Bottom Billion by Paul Collier, and “Where Does the Money Go? Best and Worst Practices in Foreign Aid,” by William Easterly and Tobias Pfutze.
