Twinning Progammes with Local Authorities in Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania
Håkan Falk , Börje Wallberg
Twinning arrangements between cities and municipalities in Sweden and Central and Eastern Europe merged on a wider scale after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Since 1991, Sida has granted 50 MSEK towards 120 projects in the four countries. About 80 Swedish municipalities have participated in the programme. The objective of the evaluation was to evaluate the democratic effects, both in the short and long run, of the support to the twinning programmes in Polandand the Baltic states.
