Untying aid can help balance the power dynamics that mediate the relationship between donors and recipients, which affect the aid delivery negotiations, the priorities for the use of aid resources, and the expectations about the outcomes stemming from the donation. Whereas the claim for untied foreign aid might seem obvious at first, a closer look at the problem reveals that this is not a straightforward issue. There are multiple interests involved in the process, which create a series of challenges in the process of reforming the aid system.
