    Book details


Despite the labyrinthine bureaucracies, frustrating inefficiencies, and disorienting complexities of the "development business," many individuals and groups find their way through and contribute to positive change. How do they do it? What ethical and practical dilemmas do they face, and what strategies do they find most effective for overcoming them? Sarah Parkinson draws on the experiences of more than 150 practitioners to provide insights on how the international development system functions―and seasoned, down-to-earth advice about how to successfully confront its challenges.

(Nick Macdonald, Mercy Corps)A balanced, yet frank, account of the realities of following a career in international development.... A must read for new and seasoned development practitioners alike.

Review Text

  • By Anthony De Vito on March 25, 2014

    So many wonderful points are made that I hadn't yet considered. It answered for me many questions I had had concerning ethical advocacy in international settings. My daughter is considering a career as an aid worker within consulate work and I bought her a copy to help speed her along in her career in a realistic and practical way. So glad that this book is available for her generation to benefit from such an amazing body of work.
