Considerable material and human resources are devoted to building democratic institutions around the world. Why, then, do assistance programs fail to meet their proclaimed goals? And why aren t these programs changed or abandoned when they fail? Using US assistance to women s NGOs in postcommunist Ukraine as a case study, Kateryna Pishchikova shows why democracy promotion programs have a limited or even negative impact on democracy in recipient countries. Combining analysis of policy documents with in-depth interviews and observations, she explains the persistence of aid despite the disillusionment of its beneficiaries.
