Published in 1997, this book traces the development of European Food Aid Policy from its inception in the 1960s through to the 1990s. This covers the change from a surplus disposal programme in the early days to the present policy. The European Food Aid Policy is one of the few areas of development policy that is European rather than national in character. John Cathie therefore also examines the links forged with non-governmental organizations at an international level, for food aid and humanitarian operations.


’Food aid has come to play a prominent part as one of the few community-wide economic aid policies that has distinctive European character and identity and is operated on behalf of the union as a whole by the commission as a coherent policy.’ Abstracts of Public Administration, Development and Environment ’…an insightful account and reference for all the important food aid programmes of the developed world…provides valuable reference material for those wishing to understand the detail of the policy-making process…has filled the gap in the academic literature on the history of food aid policy in the EU.’ Journal of Agricultural Economics
