The Transnational NGO Initiative is proud to present: 

Tawanda Mutasah, International Director of Programs, Open Society Foundation and

Mary-Jane Ncube, Humphrey Fellow at Maxwell and Executive Director, Transparency International, Zimbabwe                

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 (TNGOs)?  And what processes are best for bridging those gaps? Mr. Mutasah and Ms. Ncube 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 Foundation (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.

In Zimbabwe, he was founding chair of the National Constitutional Assembly - a prodemocracy coalition of over 200 national civic organizations. In the early 1990s, Mutasah was a young national leader who experienced various episodes of Mugabe's retribution against Zimbabwe's pioneering civic activism, suffering persecution as a national student leader and then as a human rights defender and pro-democracy organizer. He currently serves on many African and international boards, including as chair of the Institute for a Democratic Alternative for Zimbabwe (IDAZIM), and as a founding trustee of the Southern Africa Litigation Centre (SALC).
