The Hunger Games: The Global Race to Build Civil Society
- Global Business Development Director
- Walton Sustainability Solutions Iniiatives
For the past twenty years, Western governments and private foundations have spent billions to implement democratic order in emerging democracies. The West’s cornerstone to civil society development is the formation of NGOs and the development of donor systems found in most Western countries (i.e., foundations, endowments, and corporate social responsibility programs). In this talk, Nahzi will discuss how public and privately funded civil society development programs are established and implemented in emerging democracies and he will take a deeper look into their effectiveness.
Fron Nahzi has more than 20 years of international development experience. He has worked and lived in more than 20 countries in the Balkans, Central and Eastern Europe, Caucuses, Africa, Oceania, and Southeast Asia.
