The controversy between development studies and postcolonial studies is characterized by a mutually critical approach towards the other field, a disinterest in response and consequently a lack of interaction. The ambivalence that emerges from this non-interactive debate underlines that as long as these academic fields stay separated nothing constructive will appear. From initially analyzing the respective fields’ potential to improve the human right’s concept, this paper’s main focus has become to examine the Swedish governments strategy plan for financial aid as seen from a postcolonial perspective.

Thus it will demonstrate that the Swedish governments strategy plan has several matters in which this critique is applicable and severe. The intention is to expose these issues and analyse them in a constructive discussion. (Less)
