Speaker information

Aseem Prakash, University of Washington

NGOs/nonprofits are supposed to be a crucial pillar of democracy. Scholars view NGOs as principled and trustworthy actors, representing the grassroots, and articulating the voices of the people. Yet, the civil society project is under challenge. While they were once considered to be trustworthy and exempt from transparency demands, NGOs are now being held to accountability standards commonly expected from governments and firms.
