Review: "Can good governance be exported? International development assistance is more frequently being applied to strengthening governance in developing countries, and in Exporting Good Governance: Temptations and Challenges in Canada's Aid Program, the editors bring together diverse perspectives to investigate whether aid for good governance works." "Presenting both conceptual analysis and empirical case studies, the first section of the book examines the rise of good governance in the Canadian aid agenda and the changing international setting in which this has occurred. These chapters probe the shifting international politics of aid; the evolution of the concept of "good governance" in aid agencies; the history of Canada's evolving aid priorities; the organization of Canadian aid; and the prospects of greater international co-operation on development assistance. The second section presents case studies of six nations. Three are countries to which Canada has devoted a significant portion of its aid efforts over the past five to ten years: Ghana, Vietnam, and Bangladesh. Two are newer and more complex "fragile states" in which Canada has engaged: Haiti and Afghanistan. These five are then compared with Mauritius, which has enjoyed relatively good governance. The final section looks at challenges and new directions for Canada's development policy."--Jacket.
