Call for applications: Ph.D. Course: 'Critical perspectives on NGOs in development'

Published: 01 March 2017

The objective of this interdisciplinary course is to critically analyse the changing role of NGOs in development, focusing especially on health and environment.

  • What roles do NGO-actors play: for example in communicating local realities to those in power, in representing civil society, or as sub-contractors to donors?
  • What are their resources, and sources of power; and how is this power exercised?
  • What are the wider implications of the increased influence, proliferation-, and professionalization of NGOs?

Course applications are accepted until 31 March, 2017.
