Abstract [en]

This thesis examines how officially funded Swedish Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) adhering to certain values and principles choose to allocate aid. With data gathered from the Sida CSO project database, we utilize a Tobit model to outline these patterns. Through separating the CSOs into categories in accordance with their value-systems, we subsequently contrast the results with previous findings. In conclusion, we establish different outcomes for each group. Religious and environmental organizations seem to primarily allocate aid to poorer countries whereas non-specific organizations tend to target more developed countries, responding to indicators of governance. Religious and political organizations show signs of mimicking Sidas aid allocative patterns.
