Abstract [en]

In an attempt to outline how Sweden manage the conflictive objectives of economic growth

promotion and democracy promotion in authoritarian states, this study analyzed the Swedish

development cooperation strategies for Uganda and Rwanda between the years of 2001-2019. By

using the qualitative method of conventional content analysis, five main precautionary measures

used to manage the conflictive objectives were identified; the withholding of general budget

support, strengthening actors of change, balancing governmental support with civil society

support, engaging in political dialogue, and compensating for the lack of democratic principles

and respect for human rights in the recipient country’s development plan. In addition to that, the

study indicates that the recent trend within the international aid community, where strands of

modernization theory has regained intellectual influence, is also applicable to Sweden.
