Trends in government support for non-governmental organization: is the "Golden Age" of the NGO behind us?
This paper looks at the trends in government support for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and questions the position of international NGOs. The paper explores the role of INGOs and discusses the idea that current donors tend to work directly with recipient governments to reduce poverty, thus eliminating the functions of the NGO. The paper finds a variety of beliefs in terms of funding trends, and argues that this points to a change in the role of INGOs in the current development scheme, rather than their demise.
