The objectives of this book are threefold. It is essential to first understand why the issues of poverty and foreign aid have emerged as a global agenda and how and why these relationships between the rich and the poor have developed. In this sense, the first step is to trace the evolution of foreign aid from its beginnings in the aftermath of World War II to better understand the historical contours of donor and recipient relationships. Second, we seek to assess global efforts made by the international community during the 50-year history of development aid and identify challenges for the Post- 2015 era. The international community has improved aid practices but there are still many obstacles to achieving global goals and eradicating global poverty. Last but not least, we recognize that the boundaries of development aid have expanded to include a wide range of complex issues and practices as well as the participation by multiple actors. We also emphasize the importance of constructing a global governance framework and aid architecture that encourages cooperative networking among multiple actors for increased aid effectiveness in the future.
