The Economics and Politics of NGOs in Latin America
Bloomsbury Academic, 1999 M07 30 - 216 pages
The burgeoning sector of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in Latin America—funded by Northern donors—is both catalyzing and responding to change, as states, market, and civil society realign in an age of information technology and globalization. The political economic perspective of this book clarifies the emerging role of Latin America's NGOs in the global community. After introducing the expanding role of NGOs in the international community at large, the book explores the history of NGOs in Latin America. It then uses case studies to examine the economics and politics of NGOs vis-a-vis information, partnerships, opportunism, entrepreneurship, and compromise with donors.
