The Management of Non-Governmental Development Organizations

David Lewis
Routledge (May 2001)

The profile of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in the developing world has increased dramatically over the past decade. International and local NGOs have moved centre stage within international, national and local efforts to eradicate poverty, and are now seen as an important element of 'civil society', a concept which has been given increasing importance, alongside the state and market sectors, by policy makers.

This book explores the newly emerging field of the management of NGOs working in the area of poverty reduction in developing countries. By giving equal attention to the activities, relationships and internal structure of the NGO, the author develops a composite model of NGO management which seeks to analyse the distinctive challenges faced by these organisations.
