The Real World Of Ngos (discourses, Diversity, And Development)
|Dimension||6 x 9 in., 400g|
THE REAL WORLD OF NGOS is an ethnography of an NGO which helps development practitioners understand better what NGOs are, and the roles played by local history, language, social ties, and politics in development work. In this book, Dorothea Hilhorst "offers an empirically rooted and theoretically innovative understanding of the internal workings, organizational practices and discursive repertoires of this kind of organization. Her evidence and insights lead to a different picture of NGOs from that prevailing in the literature. And her model of NGOs, as organizations which often have several different faces, fragmented, and comprising fluctuating social networks, is helpful to understanding not just these bodies, but official development agencies too."- Zed Press
Dr. Hilhorst is senior lecturer at the Wageningen Agricultural University in The Netherlands.
