First, this study is about the policy process and policy discourse of two donors: the Netherlands and Germany. By comparing two policy processes, I hope to better understand which practices are really important. Germany forms a good contrast with the Netherlands, because of its clear-cut distinctions in the policy process, for example, in terms of the actors involved. Second, this study is about the process of, and discourses on, bilateral aid policy. I am interested in the process within donor countries. An analysis of the policy process on multilateral level like the World Bank or the EU would be outside that focus. Third, I analyze the bilateral policy on good governance with respect to a particular region in the World, namely Sub-Saharan Africa. Two development cooperation relationships, with Kenya and Uganda, I have analyzed in greater detail.
