Institutional Models of the Official Development Assistance Policy in the Baltic Sea Countries
Politics and Governance
(Master’s programme)
2018
The phenomenon known as Official Development Assistance Policy (ODA) is an important instrument of international cooperation. The need to organize such activities bearing in mind the emerging and already influential trends in the development of the entire world community, as well as the conditions in which humanity has to develop, is clearly visible. When it comes to global crises and problems, no state can remain indifferent, because there is an objective reality - countries can only fight such challenges together.

The aim of this work is a comprehensive analysis of Institutional Models of the Official Development Assistance Policy in the Baltic Sea Countries. The Baltic Sea region is distinguished by the fact that it presents quite a variety of models of ODA policy, while the countries of the region maintain close economic, political and cultural relations. The States of the region are members of regional organizations; they make decisions on various regional issues of economic, environmental and other areas together.

The study is built in accordance with the neo-institutional theory. Germany, Sweden, Poland and Estonia were selected for the most representative study. The main objectives of the work are the study of the ODA within the framework of the theory of neo-institutionalism, the analysis of the place of the ODA in the concept of "soft power", the definition of the fundamental categories and the further construction of Institutional Models of the Official Development Assistance Policy in the Baltic Sea Countries.
