Between Power and Irrelevance
The Future of Transnational NGOs304
Between Power and Irrelevance explores why the gap between transnational NGOs' rhetoric and reality exists and what TNGOs can do to close it. The book argues that TNGOs need to change the fundamental conditions under which they operate by bringing their own "forms and norms" into better alignment with their ambitions and strategies.

Journal of Economic Literature (Volume 59, no. 1) Presents a sectoral analysis of transnational nongovernment organizations (TNGOs), focusing on medium- to large-sized TNGOs founded and based in North America and Western Europe.
Ramesh Kumar Singh Malla, Independent Consultant, former COO, Greenpeace, and former CEO, ActionAid International This a must read for INGO leaders and senior staff of INGOs, particularly in the Global South, so that they can understand what is going on in the power-centres of their INGO organizations [...].
Joao Diniz, Regional Leader, Latin American and the Caribbean Region, World Vision For those of us that acknowledge the critical role of TNGOs to preserve equality, human dignity, justice, environmental balance and solidarity, the comprehensive analysis provided by the authors, deconstructed in key dimensions such as context, organizational grassroots, strategy, governance, leadership and digital transformation is an outstanding tool to redesign the present and future of non-governmental organizations.
Chris Proulx, Global Director, Humentum It is a perfect antidote to the abundance of over-hyped, but paper-thin discussions around the disruption of the global development sector.
Amy Coughenour, President and CEO, Cadasta Foundation It is required reading for practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and those seeking an informed glimpse into the impending forks in the road facing these historically powerful development actors.
Pierre Ferrari, President and CEO, Heifer International This book is a must read for all TNGO practitioners. It is both provocative, and well argued. The questions raised cannot be ignored if authentic impact is sought. Buy it, read it as a group and consider the changes that are truly necessary.
Ashley Bishop, Senior Technical Specialist, Measurement and Evaluation, Winrock Group This book does not disappoint. The authors have clearly drawn from deep research knowledge of this sector, drawing from cases and examples throughout. I highly recommend it for anyone working in transnational NGOs today.
Mary Kay Gugerty, Nancy Bell Evans Professor of Nonprofit Management, University of Washington A provocative and clear-eyed look at the challenges facing transnational non-governmental organizations (NGOs) as they seek to fulfill their ambitious missions while staying relevant and ethical. The book connects to the academic literature but is written for both practitioners and academics in a straightforward and compelling style. The authors have been working with and studying these organizations for many years and their insights are embedded in the real-life
dilemmas of these NGOs.
