Neighbours and family first: donors should consider the effects of political favouritism in Africa
The Nordic Africa Institute, Migration, mobility and transnational relations.
2015 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In many African countries it is a known fact that a person belonging to the same ethnic group as the president is less likely to be treated unfairly by the government. The same is valid for people living in the president’s home region, regardless of their ethnic affiliation. Ethnic and regional favouritism are two distinct but parallel problems. This Policy Note, drawn from data involving 20 000 citizens in 15 African countries, explore the scope of favouritism and its implications for citizens and democratic attitudes.
