NGOs in Development
The NGO Study Group provides a forum for academics and researchers working on issues around civil society and development. The NGO Study Group has debated themes such as: research collaboration between academics and practitioners, NGOs and migration, local organisations and emergency relief, the ethnography of NGOs, and civil society and counter-terrorism. Regular emails keep members informed of upcoming events. The study group has over 50 members, and welcomes new members from the academic, NGO, and policy-making community.
The NGOs in Development Study Group will host a panel at the DSA2016 Conference on ‘NGOs, Politics and Power’. We invite papers from academics, researchers, practitioners and consultants, as well as nominations for panellists for a roundtable discussion on this theme.
