Since its establishment during the Truman administration, the U.S. foreign assistance program has been seen by policymakers as a primary means of influencing the politics and economies of recipient countries. But the effects of foreign assistance has often had unintended consequences. In this episode of the Strategy Bridge podcast we talk with Dr. Jessica Trisko Darden about how US foreign assistance contributes to state violence and government repression.
Trisko Darden is an assistant professor of international affairs at the School of International Service at American University and is the author of Aiding and Abetting: US Foreign Assistance and State Violence.
