Summary/Abstract: The adoption of the Millennium Declaration in 2000 by 189 member states of the United Nations, 147 of which were represented by their Heads of State, was a defining moment for global cooperation in the twenty-first century. It was not a vision of an ideal world that the political representatives of the 189 states of the world, including Slovakia, created in September 2000, but they did establish a program of concrete measures in order to at least approach the ideal. A decade after adopting the UN Millennium Development Goals and half a decade spent trying to achieve them signals the right moment for evaluation – and that applies also to the Slovak Official Development Aid.
