Think further or continue to let the transfer axiom rule?

Of: Johan Åkerblom

Sida has been commissioned by the government to propose a concentration of Swedish bilateral development assistance. But when Sida is to "concentrate" again, it should start by asking the questions: Why should we have bilateral aid at all? Why do we not send the money through the EU or the World Bank, when the majority of the money is still to be put in a common donor pot? What exactly is the raison d'être of bilateral aid?
