Serier – Sida EvaluationDescription:
The Swedish development cooperation with the Baltic States and Russia was initiated in 1990 and 1992 respectively. From the inception great emphasis was placed on transfer of knowledge. In 1994/95 four specific goals were established for the cooperation. The Start East Programme, financed by Sida, specifically addresses the goal of "supporting a social and economic transformation".
The evaluation is based on a number of case studies from which attempts have been made to draw general conclusions.
