New publication: 'Collaborative Propensities Among Transnational NGOs Registered in the United States'

 Permanent link

George E. Mitchell authored the article 'Collaborative Propensities Among Transnational NGOs Registered in the United States.'


Abstract: NGO collaborations and government–NGO relations have become popular subjects of inquiry in public administration. Analysis discovers that leaders’ organizations exhibit either an “independent” or an “interdependent” collaborative propensity. As members of global civil society, many transnational NGO leaders are reluctant, if not averse, in their attitudes toward collaboration with actors outside of civil society, particularly government agencies. Leaders of independent transnational NGOs evince concern over the implications of intersectoral collaboration for organizational legitimacy, whereas leaders of interdependent transnational NGOs appear to be attracted to the increased funding and recognition that intersectoral collaborations may provide.
