This chapter shows how ideas about aid and development were shaped by events in eastern and central Europe and the former Soviet Union, in particular the increasing focus in aid programmes on issues around governance, democratization and rights. It also looks at the growing importance of poverty reduction as the key objective of aid and development, and the emergence of the new International Development Targets (IDTs).

Keywords:   former Soviet Union, aid programmes, governance, democratization, poverty reduction, International Development Targets, IDTs, poverty
