Abstract [en]

There is an unequal distribution of resources for research in the world, and a very small amount of the resources for research worldwide are dedicated to the challenges that low-income countries face. Promoting science and technology for development is not a new phenomenon, but the efforts involving aid actors have expanded greatly since the 1990’s, not least since the “knowledge society” and “knowledge-based economy” became hot topics. Many aid actors also have explicit ambitions of escaping a colonialist heritage in foreign aid by for example underlining the importance of local ownership and local priorities in their policies. However, there is debate concerning whether the goals and methods of aid actors are having the intended effects or whether there is risk for scientific neocolonialism and increased dependencies. This area of study concerns the intersection between science policy and development policy. The two areas at times have conflicting goals, and the case of research aid illustrates these. The paper presents my PhD project and includes a discussion about material, method and theory concerning a historical policy study of the research aid actor formerly known as Sarec (which in 1975 was one of the pioneer state agencies to engage in bilateral research aid). I present some preliminary conclusions concerning the main discourses identified in the material.
