Development NGOs and Languages: Listening, Power and Inclusion

Hilary Ann Footitt, Angela Crack, Wine Tesseur

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Sensitivity to languages is central to any serious analysis of inequality between Global North and Global South. Development NGOs and Languages is a long overdue intervention in this area, exploring urgent questions of interpreting and translation in the work of international NGOs. Drawing on extensive geographical and institutional case studies, the book recasts development as an inherently multilingual operation. The result is essential reading for scholars and practitioners in this field.
