"Neither Alternatives nor Combat Chances: the Development Aid of Russia and the Drug Policy in Afghanistan"


The thesis highlights the development aid of Russia and the drug policy in Afghanistan. The key research question is: To what extent is an Afghan counter narcotics policy related to development aid of Russia in Afghanistan? The main result shows that the more the Afghan government does combat opium production the more aid does it get from Russia.
