Abstract

The current development agenda envisages a substantial increase in volumes of development assistance
along with changes in other policies which affect developing countries, including trade, debt
and migration. Successful and sustainable international development cooperation policies and expenditures
are believed to require a constituency for aid in donor countries. The paper explores the
question of how public support for international development cooperation in donor countries can
be built and nurtured. It attempts to identify factors which determine public attitudes towards development
assistance and measures that can be undertaken by state authorities to exploit these factors
to the advantage of a greater support for development cooperation. It reviews rationales and
arguments which can be used to explain to the publics of donor countries the need of transferring
a part of their national income to developing countries. It also presents approaches which have
been developed by donors in order to enhance public understanding of the need for development
cooperation and to strengthen support for development assistance.
Resumen
La actual agenda de desarrollo internacional prevé un substancial incremento de volúmenes de
ayuda al desarrollo, junto con cambios en las demás políticas que afectan a los países en desarrollo,
tales como la política comercial, de deuda y de migración, entre otras. Unas exitosas y sostenibles
políticas de cooperación al desarrollo requieren, como se supone, la existencia en los países donantes
de una ciudadanía que reclama la ayuda al desarrollo. En este artículo se investiga la cuestión
de cómo impulsar y fomentar en los países donantes el apoyo público a favor de la cooperación al
desarrollo. Se pretende identificar los factores que determinan las actitudes de los ciudadanos en
cuanto a la ayuda al desarrollo, así como las medidas que las autoridades públicas pueden implementar
con el fin de aprovechar dichos factores para conseguir un mayor apoyo público a la cooperación.
Se revisan argumentos que se pueden empelar para explicar a los ciudadanos de los países
donantes la necesidad de transferir una parte de su renta nacional a los países en desarrollo. Además,
se presentan enfoques empleados por los donantes para facilitar la comprensión de la necesidad
de cooperación al desarrollo, así como para aumentar el nivel de apoyo público a la ayuda al
desarrollo.
