The challenges currently facing international organisations working with developmentare many. Social movements are gaining ground on NGOs while the aid effectivenessagenda is putting more demands on NGOs. Climate change is adding new dimensionsto development work, and the question of NGO legitimacy is becoming increasinglypertinent. In a world moving towards globalisation, the response from many NGOs is tojoin hands and form alliances. But is bigger always better? And how do these changesaffect the poor people, whom NGOs claim to support?This booklet documents a series of seminars on the changing civil society context arrangedby the Danish NGO network Thematic Forum in the autumn of 2009.
