This resource is primarily for the members, managers and volunteers of big and small NGOs. People interested generally in development and the role of civil society may also find it a useful capacity-building resource.
It is a quick reference containing ten sets of tips and online tools on common topics related to the basic content of international and domestic laws and generally accepted governance principles affecting the civil society sector.
The collected tips and open access tools that follow are an update from NGO Law and Governance: A Resource Book, by Grant Stillman. That book identifies in more detail core principles common to a majority of the legal and governance systems throughout the world and distills from them some practical guidance for everyday experiences. It is available for free at the Asian Development Bank Institute's website at NGO Law and Governance: A Resource Book.
While web resources from other countries have been sought to diversify the worldwide coverage, the selection is necessarily limited by the need for these materials to be in English, reasonably reliable and of interest to as wide a group of NGOs in different countries as possible. Citations of samples, model forms or precedents are for indicative purposes only and should not be considered as any endorsement of their contents.
