Edited By: Ondine Barrow and Michael Jennings
Provides an historical account of key issues facing NGOs today. Each chapter, a case study based on extensive fieldwork, seeks to identify and analyze the roots of problems, past and present.
'These engaging case studies challenge assumptions about the relationship among the state, NGOs, and local communities in Africa...a most welcome addition to the field of development studies.' - Fran Vavrus, Teachers College, Columbia University 'One of the strengths of the book is that it covers different types of NGOs that vary from each other in terms of their operations, structures and orientations...a valuable addition to the burgeoning literature on non-governmental organizations and development in east and northeast Africa. It is essential reading and a useful tool for teaching.' - Gaim Kibreab in African Affairs 'This collection draws together the experiences of the NGO community within the region covered and raises key questions concerning the implications and consequences of intervention. The case studies are detailed and engaging, highlighting the need for greater levels of accountability to exit between NGOs and the societies in which they serve.' - Rebecca Moran in Modern African Studies
