About this book

This book provides a systematic account of the changing priorities, procedures and practices of French NGOs active in overseas development work. It explores whether French NGOs are eschewing wider trends in the Northern NGO sector and uses Resource Dependence theory and a case study of NGO field-work in Cameroon to shed light on these actors.

Reviews

' [a] methodical and comprehensive study combines an impressive emperical account...(both in terms of quantity and quality of detail) with an interesting theoretical discussion...The book is carefully researched...In any case, this book should be an essential reading for strudents of French and development studies, especially because of its strong comparative dimension and value.'
