to multilateral aid agencies (UN agencies and IFIs) can be used as a proxy for the degree of altruism of the donors operating in the recipient country. The temporal structure of conditional schemes leads to credibility problems. Studies by Coate (1995), Svensson (2000a,b, 2003), Pedersen (1996, 2001), Federico (2004) and Hagen (2006) identify the donor’s lack of credibility as the problem underlying limited aid effectiveness. As an illustration of this problem, Kanbur (2000) relates how Ghana violated the budgetary conditionality in the WB’s Structural Adjustment

1 Introduction This article questions the relevance of the different measures of policy performance that are currently used by international organizations to allocate Official Development Aid (ODA). It evaluates more especially the pertinence of the World Bank’s Country Policy and Institutional Assessment (CPIA) and of the various alternatives that have been proposed in the literature. It suggests a new way of assessing aid effectiveness. Measuring policy performance is of particular importance: ODA represents a limited but needed resource for developing

Introduction There is a paradox in the global aid effectiveness agenda with regard to gender equality and citizen engagement. Instead of promoting the fulfil- ment of development goals, the push towards measuring effectiveness itself undermines the ability of women’s organizations to carry out their work effectively. To illustrate this paradox, I begin this chapter by offer- ing a brief overview of the global landscape in development coopera- tion, which has been shaped by the attempts of international civil society organizations (CSOs) to claim democratic

2 Learning Global Governance: OECD’s Aid Effectiveness and “Results” Management in a Kyrgyzstani Development Project marie campbell This chapter offers insight into how development aid – especially its more effective management as promoted by multilateral organizations and donor governments – contributes to the post-Cold War organization of global capitalism. The Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness (OECD– DAC 2005) and its recommended management by results (MBR) strat- egy are the discourses at the centre of this analysis. Sponsored by the

practices in aid delivery that would improve the impact of foreign aid – i. e. help countless individuals struggle less. Of course, there are different conceptions of development, foreign aid, and aid effectiveness. Given space constraints, I cannot fully explore such differences, just as I cannot comprehensively explore all the geopolitical, legal, and economic considerations of my proposal. Thus, foreign aid reciprocity agreements have a sense of urgency that a simple policy of helping others in the future because someone helped you lacks. The unilateral vow by
