From "Debating foreign aid: right versus left"

By Jean-Philippe Thérien (Third World Quarterly, Vol 23, No 3, 2002, p. 457).

It might be said that the 1990s witnessed the fusion of the priorities of the two previous decades. The macro-economic emphasis of the 1980s has been preserved along with the reintroduction of the human-orientated goals of the 1970s. Thus, while it continues to emphasise the need for market-based policy reforms, the new aid agenda is more attuned to the political and social setting in which such reforms are to be carried through.
