The Future of Transnational NGOs: A virtual roundtable with
the authors of Between Power and Irrelevance
Join the authors for a virtual discussion of their book,
Between Power and Irrelevance. The book explores why a gap between
transnational NGOs' rhetoric and reality exists and what they can do to close
it. It argues that TNGOs need to change the fundamental conditions--the
"architecture"--under which they operate by bringing their own forms
and norms into better alignment with their ambitions and strategies. Drawing
upon a variety of perspectives, including hundreds of interviews with TNGO
leaders, firsthand involvement in major organizational change processes in
leading TNGOs, and numerous workshops, training institutes, consultancies, and
research projects, the book examines how to adapt TNGOs for the future.
