Abstract [en]

This paper is concerned with how the EU allocates aid in line with their own goals and with principles of policy coherence and development promotion. The EU aims to integrate trade policy in development policy and as an indicator of this we investigate whether countries facing low agricultural tariffs receive more aid. This paper also investigates whether trade strategy motives are present in aid policy by looking at whether agricultural trade competition and low trade barriers influence aid allocation. We find no convincing effects of tariffs on aid but do find that EU countries allocate less aid to countries that faces low agricultural tariffs and are competitors to them in agriculture.
