Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Scholar Abhishek Parajuli presents at TEDxOxford

WHT Scholar Abhishek Parajuli recently gave a talk on the impact of foreign aid at TEDxOxford. Drawing upon his MPhil research, Abhishek questioned whether or not the impact of foreign aid is always as positive as we hope. His thesis, that foreign aid can cause citizens to worry less about corruption, is controversial, but allows space for researchers and practitioners to design new and more effective mechanisms for distributing aid.
