The Collaboration between Sida and SAI
Ninna Nyberg Sörensen , Peter Gibbon
The present collaboration agreement comes to an end in December, 1999. For a number of years the Development Studies Unit at SAI (The Department of Social Anthropology) has requested an evaluation of the collaboration, especially of the extent to which Sida's shifting focus from project-based aid to programme-based co-operation and policy dialogue meets the specific needs and interests corresponding to the main research orientatoin and teaching activities at the department/unit in Stockholm as well as at other Swedish universities. In August 1998, it was finally decided to carry out an in-depth review of the collaboration and its results to date.
