This CSD Civic Service Research Fellows study investigated the Technical Aids Corps (TAC) Scheme established by Nigeria in 1987 to provide human development assistance to African, Caribbean and Pacific countries as a “practical demonstration of South-South cooperation.” Using in-depth interviews, the research explored factors that encourage participation in civic service, the effect of TAC on servers’ civic nationalism and the program’s impact on recipient and server communities.
