''Development Aid and Regulatory Policies in Recipient-Countries: Is there a Specific Effect of Aid for Trade?''
( 2020, Vol. 40 No.1 )
This article explores the effect of the cumulated development aid, including the cumulated amounts of each of its two components, namely Aid for Trade (AfT) and NonAfT (i.e., development aid flows not dedicated to the trade sector) on regulatory policies in recipient-countries. The analysis is performed on an unbalanced panel of 129 countries over the period 2002-2016. Results suggest that for Least developed countries (LDCs), only the cumulated NonAfT flows influences positively regulatory policies, while for NonLDCs (other countries than LDCs), it is rather the cumulated amounts of NonAfT flows that exert a positive effect on regulatory policies.
