Abstract [en]

Bachelor essay in political science by Linus Johansson, fall of 2006

“Aid and corruption: How do aid donors handle the corrupt regimes?”.

Supervisor: Jan Olsson.

The purpose of this essay is to describe the aid relation between donors and corrupt

governments, to find out whether donors reckon on the problems with implementation of aid

to corrupt governments when they decree their aid policy. There are a lot of different ways to

implement the economic aid that are being used by the donors today, and this essay will try to

exemplify the different methods of implementing the economic aid. To elucidate the relation

between donors and corrupt regimes, the essay analyzes three themes: the first two questions

are about the policies used by the donors, and the third question are used to shed light on the

actual implementation of aid to corrupt governments. The three themes are: i) Different aid

policies used by the donors ii) Do donors use particular policies against corrupt regimes? iii)

Do corrupt regimes receive less foreign aid? This study stresses the fact that donors do not

act like a group unit in the matter of development assistance policy, instead they act in

several separate groups, this may complicate the endeavour of making economic aid effective.

The conclusion of the essay is that corrupt governments are treated the same way that lesscorrupted

government are, nothing today indicates that donors would give less economic aid

to the corrupt regimes. This is interesting considering that donors outwards maintain the

importance of rewarding good institutions, that signifies that those who in practice does not

attach great importance in this matter does not fulfil their own policies. It is an important

issue because corruption seems to debilitate the effects of development assistance, but

development assistance having problem of debilitate the corruption in the recipients’

countries.
