Corporate-NGO Partnership in Asia Pacific

Tadashi Yamamoto and Kim Gould Ashizawa, eds.
This book examines the emerging trends in the Asia Pacific region that have encouraged the formation of partnerships between corporations and nongovernmental organizations. These trends are the evolution of civil society, changing corporate attitudes toward philanthropy and corporate responsibility, the impact of the financial crisis, and the constraints on the public sector’s ability to meet demands for social development. Written by researchers from Asia Pacific, the ten case studies offer new perspectives on the rationale for forging links between the corporate and nonprofit sectors, and, in many cases, with the public sector as well. Given the relatively short history of corporate-NGO partnership in Asia Pacific, the experiences described in this book provide a unique and insightful look at the requirements of successful partnerships and the challenges that lie ahead for those who wish to attempt such arrangements in the future.
