The impacts of foreign aid and multinational corporations are highly case dependent and can be difficult to generalize.

– What form does the aid generally take? 

Impacts – 5 points

– What are some positive impacts of this aid? You should include concrete examples. 

– What are some negative impacts of this aid? You should include concrete examples. 

The relative length of these two sections should be determined by their relative importance in the country you are researching (e.g. if there are more positive impacts, the section on positive impacts should be longer).
