International Cooperation Between Politics and Practice: How Dutch Indonesian Cooperation Changed Remarkably Little After a Diplomatic Rupture

Front Cover
Transaction Publishers, 2001 - Political Science - 315 pages
This study looks at the way cooperation between both countries has been shaped by non-government actors. Questioning why President Soeharto's decision to end Dutch foreign aid in 1992 did not lead to expected outcomes, Vos demonstrates that networks of Dutch and Indonesian professionals are very influential in the bilateral policy process. Her opinion of this lesson is that international and bilateral cooperation is not of much use when politics determines criteria. Instead there should be open structures, in which ideas from the basis on bilateral cooperation can be discussed.
