Work-in-Progress - to be finalized.
This piece is about a definition submitted to Wikipedia I hope to add to Foreign Aid literature so that misconduct whenever it occurs is not kept being seen in isolation but part of a wider phenomenon peculiar to the sector, with circumstances creating a culture that tolerates it instead of deterring it.
As well as "Malfeasance in Foreign Aid", there are three closely-related pages:
Development Aid - section on Corruption
My suggestions for amendments here can be found below "Notes".
Malfeasance in Foreign Aid
Malfeasance  in Foreign Aid  or Development Aid  is wrongdoing by an officer or agent of an organisation, public or private, not-for-profit or commercial, engaged in the administration and arrangement of funds and assets given for the relief and development of people in need usually in a “developing” or “least developed country”. . Malfeasance also occurs in Humanitarian Aid.  (Old English includes the word "misfeasance".)
Malfeasance in Foreign Aid has existed for many years, reported as far back as 2002  and before, but has become more well-known after 2017 because of serious cases rapidly receiving widespread attention in mainstream and social media.
