NGOs and Organizational Change

Discourse, Reporting, and Learning

NGOs and Organizational Change

The organizational dynamics of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have become increasingly complex as they have evolved from small local groups into sophisticated multinational organizations with global networks. Alnoor Ebrahim's study analyzes the organizational evolution of NGOs as a result of their increased profile as bilateral partners in delivering aid. Focusing on the relationships between NGOs and their international network of funders, it examines not only the tensions created by the reporting requirement of funders, but also the strategies of resistance employed by NGOs.


 Reviews:

"Alnoor Ebrahim has written a fine study of the multilayered and interdependent relationships between NGOs and their funders that sheds new light on this complex terrain. His book makes an important contribution to the NGO debate." Michael Edwards, Director, Governance and Civil Society, The Ford Foundation

"This book clears a lot of debris from the superficial received wisdom about Southern NGOs. It looks deeply into how and why organizations learn, or fail to learn, and how they manage donor relationships which aim to support, but too often restrict and constrain. NGOs and Organizational Change contains valuable and sometimes disturbing insights into the real life of Southern NGOs - for managers, students and supporters alike." Ian Smillie, Co-author, with John Hailey, Managing for Change: Leadership, Strategy & Management in Asian NGOs

"...an original and refreshing account of the processes through which NGOs initiate and learn their developmental activities while managing their interdependence with donors." Nonprofit and voluntary Sector Quarterly, Nidhi Srinivas

'This book's creative critical (re)constructions of global accountabilities are extremely welcome. 'Accountability' is so ascendant in contemporary global governance, perhaps even aspiring to the kind of pivotal position once held by 'sovereignty' in Westphalian world politics. These authors show us how the new discourse can enable rather than frustrate societal betterment.' Jan Aart Scholte, Co-Director, Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation, University of Warwick
