MetadataShow full item record
The main objective of this paper is to show the general character of the impact of aid, and the activities of aid agency workers, on Southern Sudanese society, since the Addis Ababa Agreement of 1972. The author attempts to show, that the peculiarities of extreme underdevelopment and the relatively intensive aid activity have in this respect been relatively unique in Africa. The results have often tended to reinforce the structure of dependency in the Southern Sudan. Further, the growing civil war appears to be forcibly bringing to a close, aid activity in this region of the Sudan.
