"CONTESTED AID: BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE IN CENTRAL ASIA"
Keywords: Foreign aid, Donor Contestations, Business Development Assistance in the Former Soviet
Author: Dr. Gül Berna Özcan,
Abstract: With empirical evidence gathered from four different donor programmes launched in the
Kyrgyz Republic between 2004 and 2010, this study offers a critical analysis of western aid interventions and how they are
contested by local actors. The paper has three contributions. First, it is an empirically informed study of diverging outcomes of business development assistance in the Former Soviet Union. Second, it proposes a new contextualised model of power morality-transformation-agency for future aid policy formulation and academic discussions. Finally, it shows how enterprise development initiatives of USAID, TACIS/EU, Turkey and Switzerland worked in practice and through the model.
