The TNGO Initiative appeared in full force at the annual meetings of the Association for Research on Non-Profit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA) in Alexandria, VA. Presentations by TNGO members included:  


George E. Mitchell: "The Construct of Organizational Effectiveness: A Leadership Perspective."


Paloma Raggo/Ines Mergel/Rachel Sigman:  "Accountability 2.0: The Use of Social Media Tools in U.S.-based Transnational NGOs"

Christiane Pagé: "From Change Agents to Method Actors: The Effect of Transnational NGO Leadership Style on NGO-to-Government Relationships" 

David Gregory Berlan/Tosca Bruno-van Vijfeijken: "Reigning Beyond the Grave: The Case of a Time-Bound NGO"


On Saturday, November 20, we also organized the first meeting of a planned research consortium designed to bring together scholars interested in international/transnational NGOs across academic disciplines. About 20 participants discussed their research interests and how such a working group could be organized. As a first step, we agreed to set up a list-serv and organize follow-up meetings at the International Studies Association meetings in Montreal in March 2011 and ARNOVA 2011 in Toronto. Schools represented at the meeting included SUNY-Albany, University of Delaware, University of Memphis, Baruch College, George Washington University, University of Pittsburgh, University of Notre Dame, University of Washington, Georgia State University, and Harvard University, among others.
