Front Cover
Earthscan, 1999 - Business & Economics - 276 pages
"International Perspectives on Voluntary Action" explores the similarities, differences and growing connections between NGOs and voluntary agencies in both Northern and Southern contexts. Eminent authors in the field consider the differences in scale and priority that exist between different types of third sector organizations in different settings, as well as the common challenges of accountability, legitimacy, effectiveness and governance. New models of learning and communication, including Southern ideas such as micro-credit provision, are also examined.
