Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Development Politics, grade: keine, graduate institute, Masterstudies (Institut Universitaire d'études du développement (Genf)), course: Coopération internationale au développement, 18 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The speech of former president of the United States, Harry S Truman in 1949, for the foundation of the NATO, has often also been seen as the beginning of the whole development aid engagement. In his clear words, 'In addition, we will provide military advice and equipment to free nations which will cooperate with us in the maintenance of peace and security. Fourth, we must embark on a bold new program for making the benefits of our scientific advances and industrial progress available for the improvement and growth of underdeveloped areas.' Although die international system changed dramatically, old enemies vanished, whereas new ones arose, the issue of security is still, and since September 9/11 will be an even more essential topic within the discussion of development. It is to emanate that this close linkage between development and security has always had an impact on the behavior of the donor community, and is now once again in the focus of a debate concerning new approaches such as the security sector reform (SSR) and a broadening of the ODA definition due to the rising demand of peace and security in the development business.
