What constitutes good governance around the world? Editor Penelope Cagney asked experts from around the world to answer this question, using BoardSource’s Ten Basic Responsibilities of Nonprofit Boards and The Source: Twelve Principles of Governance That Power Exceptional Boards as their framework.
The book takes you for a trip around the world, as the contributors discuss elements of NGO governance specific to their country or region of the world, identify trends, share their experiences, and consider the cultural dimensions of governance.
Global Best Practices for CSO, NGO, and Other Nonprofit Boards offers a resource for understanding how to serve effectively as a board leader in and outside the U.S. Filled with case studies, the book illustrates effective governance practices, identifies and discusses interesting and significant global differences, and explores recent global trends that can serve as examples of strong board leadership. These trends include threats to civil society, growing pains of civil society, pressure to be more transparent and accountable, a board’s need for diversity and inclusion, and the emergence of new kinds of organizations that straddle for- and nonprofit models.
This book is co-published by BoardSource and John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
