American Democracy Promotion

Thomas Carothers

Oxford University Press

Democracy assistance is one of the most important policy tools available to the US for the promotion of democracy and it is an increasingly significant component of American foreign aid. This chapter traces the rise of US democracy aid since the 1960s and outlines the basic types, sources, and forms of such aid. It analyses the strengths and problems derived from the specific models of democracy and democratization that underlie US democracy programmes and concludes that rarely these programmes can produce decisive effects.
