Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this thesis is to compare the Swedish foreign aid agency, SIDA and the American, USAID and examine their notion on democracy. To fulfil this purpose I have used two questions, which are: 1) Is it possible through a society focused and an individual focused perspective see differences or similarities in USAID:s respectively SIDA:s view on democracy, on the basis of the action programme on democracy that the organisations have? 2) Can this study support notions that USAID and SIDA are acting on the basis of a similar foreign aid agenda with consideration on democracy? My conclusion is that USAID:s view on democracy is influenced by a society and individual focused perspective. My conclusion concerning SIDA:s view are that they is only influenced by a society focused perspective. My summarized conclusion relating to the first question is therefore that SIDA and USAID are influenced by a national agenda. The organisations also have similar notions of what a democratic society should consist of, which therefore gives support that they are acting in accordance with a common foreign aid agenda.
