Abstract

The aim of this survey is to explain the real impact of aid on governance in the developing countries: including the subsahara and the MENA region during the period 1990-2004 by using the “threshold theory”. Stephen Knack proved that foreign aid had a harmful impact on the governance of the developing countries. But, in this study we used a new econometric approach to test the existence of a threshold and to determine its value. This methodology allowed us to find interesting results in the relation between aid and governance, in the short and in the long run.
