Abstract:

NGO Leadership and Human Rightscovers various topics of importance to those who work in development and/or advocacy organizations with human rights orientations and for undergraduate and graduate students aspiring to such careers. This book provides context, definition and guidance for the perplexed seeking entrance into a challenging but rewarding endeavor. Ghere argues that the human rights and development communities need to communicate and interact with each other much more effectively than is the case at present. In particular, leaders of human rights and development NGOs need to "get on the same page" in terms of both theory and practice. In addition to being an informative guide for a career choice, NGO Leadership and Human Rightsstands as a readable "state of the art" survey on the scholarship and history of human rights.
