Gentle Invasions: NGO Funding and the Manipulation of Civil Society within Transitional States

Denise Horn

February 19, 2008

The Fletcher School, Tufts University

Denise Horn discusses the development of a new international regime in which hegemonic states have used funding for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to manipulate the development of civil society in transitional states. Through an examination of US funding strategies for women's NGOs within a sample of transitional states (Estonia, Moldova, and Thailand), Horn assesses the power of such strategies and the long-term effects they have had on the development of democratic norms within these states and regions.
