NGO Law and Governance: A Resource Book

Today non-government organizations (NGOs) worldwide have budgets totaling billions of dollars with tens of millions of staff. But are laws and internal controls keeping pace with their size and power?

NGO Law and Governance answers a need in an area that has experienced enormous growth over the past 25 years. Interest in the legal aspects of NGOs has increased due to their greater participation in civil society and political life.

The author, from his practical knowledge in the field, has written a concise survey for the general reader of the main issues and principles that affect most internationally operating NGOs. Attention is also paid to the improvement of governance in local and development-focused NGOs, which still work primarily in their home countries.

This book will be of interest to members, managers and volunteers of big and small NGOs and also development practitioners and students of social change. It will be helpful to anyone seeking an understanding of the basic content of international and domestic laws and generally accepted governance principles impacting the operation of the civil society sector.
