Peer Review on Swedish Assistance

Published måndag 20 juli 2009 kl 12.40

Swedes like to pride themselves in playing an exemplary role in international development co-operation. But how justified a claim is that?

The OECD, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, is a body which brings together the major economies in an effort to co-ordinate their economic co-operation and development assistance. The OECD has various committees which examine and analyse performances by the member states.

One of them is the Development Assistance Committee which presents a peer review - an analysis by a group of OECD countries of the effectiveness of another member state's international development co-operation programme.

The OECD peer reviews are carried out every four years. The most recent review on Sweden was carried out by Japan and the United States.

Radio Sweden's Azariah Kiros spoke to Karen Joergensen who heads the peer review section at the OECD.
