Charitable Impulse

Ondine Barrow Michael Jennings
Price: $ 24.95

This volume explores how development agencies are adapting to challenges, and particularly what issues face nongovernmental organizations. Changes in the operational environment, specifically the growth in complex emergencies, have changed how NGOs work. The contributors, using case studies to illustrate their analysis, look at both development activity and war-related disaster relief to explore the limits and possibilities of the 'charitable enterprise' for future humanitarian efforts. New key issues facing NGOs, such as the extent to which NGOs themselves are now a force in development, their subsidization by national governments, their role in promoting democracy and human rights, and their increasing work in conflict management are explored. This clear and highly readable book is aimed at students of international development and at those themselves working in development agencies.
