Israel's foreign assistance and un voting - Does it pay?

Leah Mandler, Carmela Lutmar

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The linkage between foreign and humanitarian aid and voting at the united nations General Assembly (unGA) and the united nations Security Council (unSC) has only recently received academic attention as scholars began to focus mainly on uS aid and its impact on voting in favor of uS resolutions promoted in both settings. To the best of our knowledge, ours is the first paper to explore the connection between aid provided by Israel and voting by recipient countries at the unGA generally, and three specific countries - the Philippines, Chad, and Ukraine - in particular, on resolutions which are unfavorable to Israel. The article concludes with some thoughts about the use of foreign aid as a policy tool.
