Humanitarian assistance can be a lifeline in places where governments are not willing or able to provide basic support for their citizens. As global disasters rise, so then does the need for humanitarian assistance. However, corruption may negatively impact the effectiveness of such aid. Corruption can hinder the ability of states to provide public services, humanitarian assistance, and emergency preparedness for their citizens. This dissertation will engage theories of corruption and evaluate the effectiveness of humanitarian aid to low income and lower middle-income nations, using Haiti as a case study. It will also assess how humanitarian aid contributes to corruption in countries with endemic and systematic corruption.
