Non-Governmental Organisations: Structure, Relevance and Function

Snehlata Chandra (Author)
Synopsis Non-Governmental Organisations: Structure, Relevance and Function, evaluates contemporary NGOs in most of their dimensions, including their successes and failures. It also reflects on modern global phenomenon, such as globalization and how in present day civil society, NGOs have emerged as a force to reckon with. No doubt, the 21 century witnessed a spur in NGO activities both in the developed and developing world. Their role in society has grown many folds which is also evident from the fact that NGOs have started setting priorities while mobilising financial resources for their uninterrupted functioning and have maintained relations both with donor agencies and clients towards successful accomplishment of assigned tasks. The NGO movement is gaining strength with every passing day and their share in sustainable development, both in terms of theoretical conceptualization understanding and practical accomplishments, have increased many fold. This is precisely the reason, this book also talks about factors like policy implications of NGOs performance standards and their public accountability. To suppliment the aforementioned analytical framework, this book also provides the readers with valuable texts like, the Manila Declaration on People's Participation and Sustainable Development, the John Hopkins Comparative Non-Profilt Sector Project. An overview of Phase II, and Building Civil Society: A Guide for Action. In sum, this book gives an overall idea about the existing structure, relevance and functioning of the Non-Governmental Organisations in a comparative framework, so as acquaint ourselves with their state of affairs around the globe. An insight into these organisations is provided with widest possible details and thereby, the readership of this book can vary from intellectuals to grass-root activists; donor agencies to societies which derive benefits, and policy makers and implementers to various stakeholders.
