The effectiveness of foreign aid should be understood as a discrepancy and complicated relationship between the factors that have a direct influence on aid management effectiveness. Therefore, this study has investigated the efficacy of aid in relation to management systems in Palestinian organizations and investigated how the effectiveness of aid may be improved, as well as explored how the current management system manages available resources- specifically, those that come through aid.

The thesis identified specific conditions that influence the ineffectiveness of aid management, by examining and exploring the handling of foreign aid within the current management system in Palestinian organizations. Therefore, this research focused on management policies, organizational structure, procedures, and processes that are followed within the management system.

Furthermore, this study has also explored respondents’ beliefs regarding the effectiveness of foreign aid, and the quality of good governance factors in Palestinian organizations. To understand the management of foreign aid as a dynamic and complex process, cross-country data and static econometric models are not the most ideal method of exploration. Therefore, a qualitative methodology has been adopted to explore the experiences, perceptions, and beliefs of people involved in the management of foreign aid. The qualitative approach also enabled the examination of tools adopted by the management system, moreover, several case studies were selected based on projects funded by aid. This study contributes significantly to knowledge in the fields of management best practices and theories. This study deducted many phenomena that contribute to creating the corruption culture, in addition to reasons and tools being used to maintain and reproduce an ineffective management system.

In practice, the study's results explored best practices in aid management and laid the groundwork for Palestinian organizations to implement policies, and procedures, that promote good governance and aid effectiveness through the adoption of good practice elements.
