This is an investigation of ownership in
development cooperation. The purpose is to describe
and analyze if there are any common factors
affecting the achievement of ownership in Small
Scale Organizations, SSOs, supported by foreign aid,
and how methods and approaches used in development
cooperation may affect those factors. Recognizing
the complexity of ownership, the thesis discusses
potential factors that can affect the achievement of
ownership. Using the case of the Ubuntu project, a
SSO based in South Africa, the thesis argues that
there are some factors that can explain the apparent
lack of ownership. The thesis
emphasizes that many of the aspects found in the
Ubuntu project are similar to other SSOs. The most
common factors that affect weak ownership seem to
among other things be participation without paying
sufficient attention to local culture, and donors
that take much responsibility.
Due to the fact that much development cooperation
has been insufficient, a rejection to phase out
foreign aid does not seem to be the solution. The
thesis argues that efforts are needed to further
develop and improve development cooperation.
