Title

Donor support of opposition parties in Namibia: How foreign support for parties effects democracy in a new democracy

Description

This paper will examine the effects of donor support of opposition parties on Namibian democracy. But this central research question elicits other crucial questions:

• How does the international community justify its support of opposition parties around the world?

• What are the prevailing conditions of a political system which lead donors to support opposition parties?

These questions are applicable to many variables, e.g., case studies, which can refer to states and political parties. Thus this paper will examine one particular case variable, Namibia, and the political parties operating there. Adding the variable Namibia to the discussion gives rise to further questions:

• What is the state of opposition parties in Namibia? • What forms of support have Namibian parties received and from whom?

• Crucially how have Namibian parties reacted to support?
