We attempt to apply these theories on the case of Tanzania, to be able to analyze the effects of foreign aid on civil society.

We are then going to, based on the results, scrutinize the new development strategies carried out by the Tanzanian government in cooperation with the aid donors, to see if they can influence civil society in a positive way.

Our findings let us conclude that the above mentioned strategies might reduce aid dependency if the state implements them well, but the chance that the strategies will provide autonomous organizations is limited. (Less)
