Between Power and Irrelevance explores why a gap between transnational NGOs' rhetoric and reality exists and what they 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. Drawing upon a variety of perspectives, including hundreds of interviews with TNGO leaders, firsthand involvement in major organizational change processes in leading TNGOs, and numerous workshops, training institutes, consultancies, and research projects, the book examines how to adapt TNGOs for the future.
