Foreign aid has become an increasingly essential foreign policy tool among states’ options especially when combined with other soft-power instruments. One of the reasons behind this trend is that rising powers have increased their efforts and activism in this field. Even though the motivation of rising powers to use aid as a policy tool reflects various economic, political, military and humanitarian reasons, foreign aid is now part of a multi-dimensional and multi-layered foreign policy strategy for these new actors. This study makes a comparison between Turkish and Indian aid and development assistance policies and practices in Africa to produce theoretical and practical inferences regarding the foreign aid strategies of rising powers. A secondary aim is to recommend practically applicable and policy-relevant proposals for Turkey.
