Abstract [en]

The following study aims to investigating the effects of an implemented Folkbildning project in Egypt. The overall goal of the project is to reduce poverty and create development. The aim of the intervention has been to develop and strengthen the civil society in Egypt through the methodology of Scandinavian Folkbildning. The target group has been persons in leading positions within civil society organizations (CSO’s) and the aspiration of the study is to evaluate the fulfillment of the project goals in three areas; Folkbildning’s significance on a personal level, on an organizational level, on a societal level.

The procedure of the study has a qualitative approach with both written and oral (recorded) interviews as sources. These sources have later on been systematized in accordance with the evaluative method called Most Significant Change.

The theoretical starting point of the study is based on the development theory of Inglehart and Welzel where so called action resources constitutes the prerequisites of human development and where development is seen as a movement towards an increasing individual ability of choice. The Folkbildning project comprehends two out of three action resources.
