Citations Despite the age of many of our publcations they are still being cited.
Our 1994 book about Darfur and Aid - The Poverty of Nations - was cited 5 times in 2015.
Already in 2016 the Poverty of Nations has been cited once more. So has our paper Why We Will Never Learn about the inconsistent incentive structures which undermine the monitoring and evaluation of Aid.
