Reza HASMATH - The Growth and Development of Chinese NGOs Domestically and Abroad, and its Implications for International Development

This talk looks at the strategies Chinese NGOs employ to survive and operate in an authoritarian institutional environment. It thereafter asks: what happens when Chinese NGOs that are born and socialized in such a domestic context, are now “going out” to other jurisdictions with similar or varying regime types? Finally, the talk will suggest that the internationalization of Chinese NGOs will foster a more pluralized global civil society. Ultimately, this will require us to rethink salient precepts and practices in international development.
