The Expert Group for Aid Studies (EBA) is a Government committee with a mandate to evaluate and analyse Sweden’s international development assistance. The EBA’s remit is to commission studies and arrange seminars on issues with relevance for the Swedish development sector. The expert group brings together a number of committee members who convene regularly to discuss and commission studies on development assistance. Another objective of EBA is to take up existing knowledge and research on international development aid and to contribute to it being used in development policy. EBA’s evaluations and analyses focus primarily on overarching issues within Swedish development assistance, not on individual aid projects.
