Cumming, Gordon David 2000. Modernisation without "banalisation": Towards a new era in French African aid relations? Modern and Contemporary France 8 (3) , pp. 359-370. 10.1080/09639480050057365

Abstract

This article considers recent changes in France's assistance programme to black Africa. It looks at the historic logic underpinning France's aid policies and structures; examines the latest reforms; and attributes these to the election of a reformist socialist government, a favourable political climate, globalisation and the constraints of EMU. The main obstacle to reform is said to be President Chirac who remains attached to the old logic of French African relations. Ultimately, however, it is not the struggle between modernisers and traditionalists but pressures from France's African and European partners which will determine the future of French aid policy.
