Non-Governmental Organizations in Development


Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) play an increasingly important role in international development, especially as aid agencies channel significant resources to NGOs as they bypass corrupt and low-capacity governments. This roundtable will review the successes of many NGOs in poverty relief, but it will also ask probing questions: To whom are NGOs accountable and what makes them responsive and responsible? How can the international community ensure that NGOs play a positive role in lifting people out of poverty?
