NGOs have proliferated in number and become increasingly
influential players in world politics in the past three decades.
From the 1970s, with the access of social movements and private
NGOs to local and international institutions, NGOs have enjoyed an
opening to bring impact global policy debates. Yet NGOs find
themselves highly constrained in bringing their material and
epistemic resources to bear in the security arena where their
activities normally must be authorized by states, or international
organizations acting with authority delegated from states. They
also find their activities, particularly in the security arena come
frequently under attack as lacking accountability or lacking
legitimacy, as NGOs are self-appointed private actors, often
representing only themselves, they are seen by many as
self-appointed meddlers in transnational affairs,
This book provides a comprehensive and accessible analysis
whether, or the extent to which, NGOs can contribute as private
actors to authoritative governance outcomes in the security realm,
and thereby help mitigate armed violence by plugging governance
gaps in this arena that state actors, or international governmental
organizations (IGOs) either neglect, or can better address with NGO
assistance. This book examines the current and future issues
surrounding this objective in four sections: "(i) a practitioner s
perspective of the potentials of conflict governance NGOs, (ii)
global civil society and legitimation of conflict governance NGO
activities, (iii) conflict governance NGOs as norm entrepreneurs
and norm diffusion in global governance (iv) conflict governance
NGOs in action.""
