PROTAGONISTS OR ANTAGONISTS? The Role of NGOs and the World Bank in the Fight Against Poverty | Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights | Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights 23 minutes ago
The book argues among other things that through the 90s the Bank bent much too much to the concern of NGOs, relatively unrepresentative NGOs. And that as a result, the Bank departed too much from it's competitive advantage in infrastructure, focusing perhaps too much on projects, softer projects such as social and education projects, that safeguard policies and other standards are too much for the poorer countries, and that projects vital to the world's poor are being held up by fear of the activists' resistance.
And among the projects that the book highlights in this regard is the Chad-Cameroon Pipeline, a project that Ms. Djiraibe has worked on for a long time, the past decade or so I assume, and worked for what she has just this week received the RFK Human Rights Award. It's also a project that Mr. Rosenblum is familiar with and has worked on in both Chad and Cameroon.

Our everyday life is permeated with power plays, strive for and and-or intrusion of authority that is maintainable through coercion or manipulation. If we try to understand this, resist power plays by other individual, organizations and state-authorities, we can achieve and spread genuine freedom.
