Serier – UTV Working PaperDescription:
UTV Working Paper / In 2004, Sida's Department for Evaluation and Internal Audit (UTV) launched an evaluation theme on support for the development of institutions - formal and informal rules. This UTV Working Paper presents two documents. The first one - the Thematic Paper - introduces and motivates the evaluation theme, and presents the central ideas behind it. The second document - the Conceptual Paper - introduces the basic concepts and a perspective on institutions and institutional development. Both documents set the stage for the evaluation theme. They also serve as a point of reference for reflection and dialogue on issues concerning support for the development of institutions among Sida staff and its partners as well as for subsequent evaluations.
