Democracy and Development

SPEECH DELIVERED:
13 Septiembre 2007
The Hague, The Netherlands

Let me admit that when I heard that a new theme in the development cooperation debate is “Democracy and Development” I was a bit puzzled. I asked if this really is something that has to be discussed. To me, development and democracy is part and parcel of each other. Perhaps a naïve idea from a long life in Parliament and Government, but also an experience from the field of development cooperation.
