Aiding Eastern Europe and the former Soviet republics

Briefing/policy papers

Since 1989 the republics of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe have opted to transform themselves into more decentralised Western-style market economies. This Briefing Paper considers the new states' eligibility for different types of assistance. It reviews assistance flows to the region, looking at leading suppliers, and examines the issue of diversion of resources from developing countries.
