Andrews, Matthew. "Has Sweden Injected Realism into Public Financial Management Reforms in Partner Countries?" HKS Faculty Research Working Paper Series RWP15-063, October 2015.

Abstract

In this report Andrews takes a specific look at whether Sweden has contributed to increased realism in poor country reform of ’public finance management’ (PFM) over the last decades. What he labels as a ’realistic approach’ pertains to efforts at working in more iterative ways, putting local reformers in the forefront and applying a more practical approach to doing reform, rather than merely focus on its technical content.
