dc.description.abstract This research uses extended case study research method to address the issue of local ownership of international projects funded by the U.S. Government. The focus on development projects uncovers factors that have escaped the policy discussion on local ownership so far, for example: indicators of local ownership and the power distribution among actors. The research finds that, the concepts of commitment, local contribution, and increased capacity promote local ownership among local stakeholders. Furthermore, the perceived power asymmetry between local stakeholders and international ones is transformed, into interdependent relations through processes of participation, negotiation and institutional learning.
