Example text

The manner in which donors perceive the relationship between democracy and security makes these incongruities both easier to explain and to tolerate. The reinterpretation of democracy and security has not only led to a reallocation of aid towards countries considered strategically important, it has also led to increased support for various security and military efforts on the continent. After the OECD’s influential Development Assistance Committee broadened the definition of what counts as official development assistance (ODA) to include contributions to security sectors, reported spending on security sector reform (SSR) increased threefold from 2004 and 2007 (Muggah & Downes, 2010: 144).

In Mauritania and Niger, for example, aid was suspended following a military coup and unconstitutional changes to the presidential term limits respectively, but in both countries assistance was restored following elections in 2009 and 2011. As in Mauritania and Niger, elections or the promise of elections often function as the trigger for the restoration of foreign aid. Elections, in this sense, are treated as a proxy for democracy; they are easy to monitor, they have a defined beginning and end, and they create a presumption of relative democracy.
