Conversations in Conflict Studies presents: Tosca Bruno-van Vijfeijken
400 Eggers Hall, the PARCC Conference Room
"Organizational Change in Transnational NGOs: Collaboration, Conflict and Unpleasant Conundrums." Guest Speaker- Tosca Bruno-van Vijfeijken, Co-Director of the Transnational NGO Initiative at the Moynihan Institute in the Maxwell School.
The TNGO Initiative focuses on the governance, leadership and effectiveness of transnationally operating NGOs. Along with colleague Steve Lux, Tosca has worked with a number of major NGOs – Save the Children, Oxfam, CARE and Amnesty International, among others -- to help them learn from major organizational change processes these NGOs have led and managed in recent years. The changes are often in part responses to major developments in the external environment of NGOs which pose fundamental threats to their future relevance, credibility and effectiveness. When NGOs initiate major organizational change processes in their frequently complex organizations this inevitably triggers collaboration as well as conflicts. In this discussion, Tosca will share her reflections on leading and managing change, conflict and collaboration.
