NGOs and Governments
Review of current practice for and southern and eastern NGOs
The case studies, guidelines and analyses presented in this book look more closely at the complexities involved in the NGO-government dialogue. The issue of governance underpins much of the writing, for in coming to terms with their roles in relation to the state, NGOs have increasingly assumed a political function: that of challenging and redressing the status quo in favour of people-centrered approaches to development.
