''Title: Aid, Institutional Transplants and The Rule of Law''
( 2019, Vol. 39 No.4 )
The paper revisits the impact of aid on institutions and discusses the role of the ill-matching of institutional transplants in explaining the reported (adverse) institutional impact of aid. The paper provides a regression analysis based on a sample of 67 developing countries over the period 1984-2003. The findings support the hypothesis that poorly received institutional transplants – and subsequent institutional crises – largely account for aid's adverse impacts on the rule of law in developing countries.
Keywords: aid, institutional transplants, rule of law, colonial history
