About Me

I am interested in all aspects of non-governmental organizations (NGOs).  In particular, people think NGOs are capable of doing a wide range of things but in practice they face many limits.

I study foreign aid, humanitarian assistance, human rights, global philanthropy, and global development.  I am particularly familiar with NGOs from the United States, Britain, and France.
