Global Backlash Against Foreign Funding to Domestic Non-Governmental Organizations

In this chapter, Kendra Dupuy and Aseem Prakash offer a political explanation for why states in the global south enact legal restrictions on foreign funded NGOs. States seek to reassert their authority vis-à-vis foreign donors and also limit the domestic space for non-governmental organizations to operate. They show that the state retains the ability to create and deny political opportunities and resources to civil society by controlling the rules under which NGOs operate—and the conditions under which they receive financial support from abroad.
