Abstract [en]

This paper is founded on a search to find a solution to what is believed to be a political problem within the process of granting aid for development. The problem is that having two methods for granting aid might cause competition between them, and this means much needed aid is not reaching underdeveloped countries. The two methods that exist for granting development aid are multilateral and bilateral aid. The aim of this paper is to investigate into a multilateral and bilateral donor’s reasons for granting aid. The bilateral donor analysed is Sweden, while the multilateral donor analysed is the World Bank. It is hoped that by comparing these donors’ idea of development and reasons for granting aid, a single type of donor can be created, thus making development aid more effective. The results of the paper show that it might not be possible to create a single donor,however there is plenty of scope for bilateral and multilateral donors to work closer together.
