    Despite the rising cost of expatriate aid, we still know very little about its effectiveness, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. Education is a major objective of technical cooperation, and at the University of Malaŵi we surveyed both locally paid Malaŵian (N = 29) and expatriate lecturers (N = 29). Malaŵians emphatically agreed that aid salaries demotivated local lecturers, while the expatriates may have been resolving guilt about their greater pay by convincing themselves of their superiority, which could also result in their own demotivation. Aid salary differentials might therefore be demotivating both host and expatriate lecturers.
