NGO Leadership and Human Rights

Richard K. Ghere

NGO Leadership and Human Rights covers various topics of importance to those who work in development and/or advocacy organisations 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 endeavour. 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 Rights stands as a readable state of the art survey on the scholarship and history of human rights.
