Many criticize the evaluation processes of individual projects with the allegation that no consequences are drawn (cf. 113). Entire projects have been set up, bringing together scholars from the field analyzing how best to design evaluation-processes for measuring the effective- 35 L. 1007/978-3-531-94079-3_2, © VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften | Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden GmbH 2011 ness of development aid as for example the MIT sponsored Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab8. In any case, it is beyond debate that many societies in our contemporary world are underdeveloped.

The methodology used is the approach to comparative cases as outlined by Stephen Van Evera (cf. Van Evera 1997) and Alexander L. George and Andrew Bennett (cf. George/Bennett 2005)7, which the author believes is best-suited to do justice to the subject of study. This methodology includes three phases of analysis: firstly, a general definition of the case studies’ objectives, design and structure of the research is formulated. Secondly, each case study is carried out individually in accordance with the formulated design.

4). Therefore, it seems more appropriate to look at all cases studied with great care and individual interpretative approaches. Only in this way is it possible to ensure that the results from the individual case studies can be compared and then to draw meaningful conclusions about the potential contingent generalization of findings and the building of a theory. The idea to analyze, modify and test a specific theory in this context stems from the aim to contribute to theory-building in international relations’ studies.
