Controvérsias da ajuda alimentar para o desenvolvimento: o protesto haitiano contra o apoio dos EUA ao programa de merenda escolar do Haiti

Thiago Lima, Erbenia Lourenço

Resumo


Embora a ajuda alimentar internacional possa ser crucial para assistência humanitária e muito importante para projetos de desenvolvimento, há casos em que seu efeito é contraproducente. Este artigo explora condições nas quais a doação de alimentos pode ser inconveniente a partir da controversa tentativa de ajuda alimentar dos Estados Unidos ao Haiti em 2016. Argumentamos que interesses econômicos do doador, mais do que motivações humanitárias ou de desenvolvimento, podem ser o impulso fundamental deste tipo de cooperação internacional.
