Trilleras Triana, Paula Milena
The main purpose of this research is to answer the question: What are the main factors that determine the aid through international cooperation to Colombia from the United States through its agency USAID? The main purpose here is to explain that these factors are directly related to external aspects that are unaffiliated to the Colombian government’s manipulation of those resources. These factors are seen as international economic crisis, both actors´ foreign policies, the interests of the institutions that assign the resources y and the prioritization process made by the United States when it comes to international cooperation. Taking this into account, a more dynamic study will be carried out of the variables that show when identifying the determinants of the increase or decrease of international cooperation in Colombia. With the liberal perspective of International Relations, this research’s results enable the identification and corroboration of the factors that may determine the amount of aid through international cooperation.
