Transnational NGOs: Big Brother or Collaborator with Global South Domestic NGOs? What are the issues that divide the experiences of domestics NGOs and transnational NGOs (TNGO)s? And what processes are best for bridging those gaps? Mr. Mutasah and Ms. Mcube will discuss the structural and environmental issues that produce conflict and competition rather than collaboration and partnership between domestic and transnational NGOs. The discussion will also articulate what conversations domestic and transnational NGOs should be having, at what stage and with whom, as well as how they should frame their priorities. Tawanda Mutasah is International Director of Programs at the Open Society Foundations (formerly Open Society Institute – OSI) in New York City, and was formerly Chair of OSF’s Africa Advisory Board. He previously directed the Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa, and, among other pre-OSI roles, served on Oxfam GB's international advocacy staff. Mary Jane Ncube has ten years of experience working as a specialist in anti-corruption and governance. She has extensive experience working with governments, local authorities and parliaments in Southern and East Africa. Mary Jane is currently the Executive Director for Transparency International Zimbabwe.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
