dc.description.abstractNGOs play an important role in international development cooperation, but the allocation ofNGO aid has rarely been mapped, let alone explained. Based on a representative dataset for61 important NGOs from various OECD countries, we analyze the targeting of NGO aidacross a large number of recipient countries by jointly considering major determinants ofNGO aid in a multivariate regression framework. While our results show that NGOs are moreactive in the neediest countries, we reject the hypothesis that NGOs complement official aidthrough engaging in so-called difficult institutional environments. Rather, they tend toreplicate the location choices of official “backdonors.” Moreover, NGOs follow other NGOsso that aid gets clustered. Finally, NGOs select recipient countries with common traits relatedto religion or colonial history. Taken together, our findings suggest that NGOs keep a lowprofile rather than distinguishing themselves from other donors and trying to excel underrisky conditions.-
