Serier – UTV Working PaperDescription:
UTV Working Paper / This working paper comprises an assessment of some general traits of Swedish support for human rights and democracy. Drawing on existing information in the form of statistics, evaluation reports and project documents the paper paints a picture of HRD-support from three different angles. Firstly, the geographical distribution of support is described: where and to whom is support directed? Secondly, experiences and problems identified in previous evaluations are analysed: what do we already know about the functioning of Sida's HRD-support? Thirdly, programme theories manifested in project documents and assessment memos are assesed: what are the most common underlying assumptions in Sida's efforts to promote HRD?
