Chin a, Gregory & Quadir, Fahimul  (2012) Introduction: rising states, rising donors and the global aid regime. Cambridge Review of International Affairs Volume 25, Number 4: 1-15.

There is general consensus in scholarly and policy circles that the global aid regime is undergoing major changes. Analysts have examined the emerging trends in development cooperation, and have identified the ‘emerging donors’ and other ‘non-DAC [Development Assistance Committee] donors’ as the source of important quantitative shifts in global aid flows (Manning 2006). Some scholars have described systemic fracturing in the established global aid regime (Woods 2008), while others have discussed the declining effectiveness of the traditional donors, a weakening of the so-called ‘Washington Consensus’ or the decline in the conventional structures of the aid delivery mechanism led by the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) DAC (Lancaster 2007; Birdsall and Fukuyama 2011; Chaturvedi et al 2012). There is a burgeoning literature around the impact of the rising states on Africa, in trade, aid and investment, society and politics, especially China’s impact (Taylor 2006; 2008; Alden 2007; Rotberg 2008; De Haan 2010; Krageland 2011). Yet much is to be done in terms of systematically and critically analysing the details of the policy intentions, political-economic motivations and programing objectives of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) as aid providers and their impact on the less developed countries.1
