This welcome addition to the NGO debate investigates how development agencies are adapting to current changes in the NGO community, specifically the growth in complex emergencies. The authors use pertinent case studies, focusing on both development activity and disaster relief, to illustrate their analysis of this change.
The book delves into issues such as: NGOs as a key force in development, their role in promoting democracy and human rights, and their increasing participation in conflict management. This cogent text, with its emphasis on actual practice, is appropriate for students of international development, as well as NGO practitioners.
