Abstract:Arguably, support to growth-enhancing structural change and employment creation is becoming increasingly important, both for donors and recipients of foreign aid. However, these are notoriously complex domains, where data and associated development strategies remain contested. Consequently, this special issue brings together five articles that tackle the questions of how and where foreign aid donors might usefully support a more inclusive or job-friendly pattern of economic growth in Africa. Contributions: Aid, growth and employment in Africa (Sam Jones, John Page, Abebe Shimeles and Finn Tarp); Aid, growth and jobs (Gary Fields); Aid, employment and poverty reduction in Africa (John Page and Abebe Shimeles); Employment effects of multilateral development bank support: the case of the African Development Bank (Anthony Simpasa, Abebe Shimeles and Adeleke O. Salami); Is small beautiful? Small enterprise, aid and employment in Africa (John Page and Måns Söderbom); Priorities for boosting employment in Sub-Saharan Africa: evidence for Mozambique (Sam Jones and Finn Tarp).
