Product Description


How exactly do international non-government organisations conceptualise the developing world when they legislate their mandate? This valuable book addresses precisely this question by insightfully and skilfully unearthing the subtext of NGO representations of global poverty, development and rights.

Neera Chandhoke, Professor of Political Science, University of Delhi

This provocative analysis of the visual language of British international non-governmental development organisations raises a set of important and pressing questions, and deserves to be read by practitioner and researcher alike. --David Lewis, Professor of Social Policy and Development, London School of Economics

HASH(0x9b37cc84) out of 5 stars New light on the image debate 15 Jun. 2012
By Rachel Tallon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In this book Nandita Dogra takes a good hard look at the debate around NGO images of global poverty and moves it up a notch. The old dichotomy of negative/positive imagery is unpacked to reveal wider and more complex issues surrounding the ways NGOs choose images to show to their Western publics. Taking a postcolonial lens, Dogra succinctly covers the history of the issues and offers new analysis of the constraints and difficulties in breaking the mould concerning representation. She illustrates with many examples how new messages can challenge the old ways of thinking. Her central thesis is that NGOs send out a paradoxical message of `difference' and `oneness' about the global South when they represent poverty. How they do this is carefully explained in the book. I read her book in just over eight hours and took four pages of notes. I know this field quite well through my own research and people often say- where is the Southern voice on this issue? Well, here is one! Well structured and well written in an accessible style, this book is essential reading for anyone interested in debates around NGOs, humanitarianism, representation, media and development.
