About This Book

Foreign-funded NGOs can have far-reaching effects on the structure and existing life patterns of the receiving countries. This often-outspoken and provocative study of foreign-funded development activities in Sri Lanka looks at their impacts in the areas of social policies and development, human rights, international relations, and academia. Case studies are seen to demonstrate how the sometimes opaque agendas of NGOs have led to the degradation of functioning local efforts and civil society. The result is seen to be imposed recolonisation. Bibliography and index.
