Representations of Global Poverty: Aid, Development and International NGOs

by

Representations of Global Poverty: Aid, Development and International NGOs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Through the efforts of increasingly media-aware NGOs, people in the west are bombarded with images of poverty and inequality in the developing world. Representations of Poverty is the first comprehensive study of the communications and imagery used by international NGOs to represent the developing world. In this meticulously researched and original book, Nandita Dogra examines the full cycle of representation - integrating analyses of the public messages of international development NGOs in the UK with the views of their staff and audiences. Exploring the Europeanised discourses inherent in appeals to this notion of a 'common humanity', she argues for a greater acknowledgment of NGOs as significant mediating institutions which can expand understandings of global inequalities and their historical causation. The book is a timely addition to the growing fields of development and media studies and will be a key resource for academics, policymakers and practitioners alike who have an interest in global poverty, aid, NGOs, and the politics of representation.

About the Author

Nandita Dogra is a postdoctoral fellow at Goldsmiths, University of London, UK. She holds an MSc in NGO Management and a PhD in Social Policy from the London School of Economics and has extensive professional experience in development and social policy.
