Abstract:In 2000, The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) formulated and implemented the Education For All (EFA) policy with the support of numerous donors to increase quality of education and literacy rates worldwide. In this research, the influence of (non) governmental donors on the EFA policy implementation is analysed proposing the following research question: In which way do the different roles of western donors contribute to the success and failure of the implementation of the UNESCO Education For All policy in Nepal and Pakistan between 2000 and 2015? The aim of this research is to contribute to scientific research on policies as instrument of development aid and on effectiveness of international aid partnerships. Using the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness as a framework for the analysis, this research investigates behaviour of the EU, the German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development and three international NGOs. Data is gathered through document research and expert interviews. The findings indicate that no significant difference between donor behaviour in both countries is existent and donors equally contribute to the successful implementation through ownership, alignment and mutual accountability. Moreover, the findings indicate that infrastructural, societal and political differences indicate a cause for the different policy successfulness. Hence, the thesis contributes relevant findings to the literature on policy implementation and practical advice for a new approach to donor policies.
