NGOs are more likely to become active in countries with higher levels of democracy, at the 10 per cent significance level. At the 1 per cent level, NGOs are more likely to be active in countries (i) which receive higher levels of bilateral official aid from the donor country in which the NGO is based, (ii) where more other NGOs are engaged, (iii) which share the same religion, and (iv) which have larger populations.

NGOs that are more financially dependent on their back donors mimic the choices of their back donors to a greater extent. Since back donors also have their own orphans and donor darlings, replicating their country choices leads to a further concentration of NGO aid. The paper on which this chapter is loosely based was published in the European Journal of Development Research in 2007 (co-authored by Judith Westeneng and Ruerd Ruben). Part III: Analysing the implications of the geographic choices of international NGOs.

This chapter aims to close this empirical gap by compiling and analysing a new dataset on aid allocation, collected for 61 NGOs based in 13 donor countries, and thus rather unique in its coverage. Data were collected from the annual reports of the international NGOs or provided by them on request. The chapter is structured as follows. It commences with a review of literature, and comes with five propositions as to what determines the cross country choices of NGOs.
