This talk will discuss a forthcoming book, which offers a new approach to studying foreign aid in the 21st century. While most analysts focus on the differences between traditional and emerging donors, we argue that a more important distinction is between East Asian donors and their Western counterparts. Asian donors – Japan, South Korea, and China – cross the traditional and emerging divide and demonstrate a particular approach to development that draws on their own dramatic success. Each has gone from being an aid recipient to aid donor in a few decades. They now want to transmit their experiences to their poorer neighbors in East Asia and incorporate them into regional production chains that will further regional success. A case study of Vietnam as a recipient provides the opportunity both to study the foreign aid process and to evaluate the Asian mode of foreign aid.
