Serier – Sida EvaluationDescription:
The study summarizes challenges, experiences and achievements during 30 years of bilateral research collaboration between Sweden and Sri Lanka and between Sweden and Vietnam, respectively. The two collaborations both started in 1976 and has since then been financed from Swedish international development cooperation resources. The study shows several types of long-term impacts of the collaboration. A number of suggestions are made on how to reorient and change focus of possible future research collaboration between Sweden and the two countries after the Swedish bilateral development cooperation has been phased out in 2011.
