Dependent communities: aid and politics in Cambodia and East Timor

Hughes, C. (2009) Dependent communities: aid and politics in Cambodia and East Timor. Cornell University Press, Ithaca, N.Y. .

Abstract

Dependent Communities investigates the political situations in contemporary Cambodia and East Timor, where powerful international donors intervened following deadly internal conflicts. This comparative analysis critiques international policies that focus on rebuilding state institutions to accommodate the global market. In addition, it explores the dilemmas of politicians in Cambodia and East Timor who struggle to satisfy wealthy foreign benefactors and constituents at home.
