Resistance to Aid

Resistance to “aid” took several forms. Some actors in the receiving countries argued that national professionals were capable of carrying as well or better the work of the technical advisors from outside who often knew and learned little about the context in which they were giving advice. A major concern was the loss of national identity, as “foreign” ideas replaced what were believed to be endogenous and unique contents and methods for educating. Other actors protested that “aid” increased the financial dependence of poorer countries on the richer “donors”. This group argued that “trade not aid” would benefit their countries more, claiming that restrictive trade barriers cost countries receiving aid more than the value of the aid received. Some actors protested that “aid” was no more than a cloak for efforts by “foreign powers” to subvert and suppress national movements for more democratic societies. A few countries, such as Mexico, rejected most offers of aid for their education sector, and took no loans.
