* Contains essays from international labor lawyers, trade unionists, NGO campaigners, corporate-watchers, scholars, and activists
* Includes perspectives from diverse groups including the Development Policy Centre, Nigeria; the Nike Watch Campaign; Union Aid Abroad; Social Accountability International; Women Working Worldwide; PSI Research Unit; War on Want; Friedrich Ebert Stiftung; and the Workers’ Educational Association
* Case studies from Iran, the Ukraine, Nigeria, and the South Pacific

Dvelopment NGOs and labor unions have much to gain from collaborating in the pursuit of a social justice and rights agenda, yet the two sectors have traditionally tended to operate independently of one another. The "another world is possible" movement; a continuing series of anti-globalization protests; and conflicting views on core labor standards, corporate codes of conduct, and the
WTO have placed civil society organizations at the center of public debates on global governance.

While NGOs and unions will naturally pursue diverse strategies and tactics, neither sector can afford to go it alone. The essays collected in this volume elucidate some of the underlying tensions between trade unions and NGOs and illustrate the scope for constructive and respectful dialogue -- and potential partnership -- between them.

About the Author:

Deborah Eade became editor of the international journal Development in Practice in 1991 and has published extensively on international development and humanitarian issues. She was an independent consultant based in Mexico before becoming Oxfam GB’s Deputy Regional Representative for Mexico and Central America (1984-1991).

Review:

"Throws badly needed light on the important but neglected issue of the relationship between trade unions and NGOs. With contributors drawn from the academia, the trade unions and NGOs, it presents a frank and critical analysis of the differences in ideology, organization and mode of operation as well as of shared goals, common interests and cooperation between the two major forces of global society. The book should be of interest to all committed to social justice in world development."

"The authors do an admirable job of capturing the complexity of the practice of NGOs, unions, and the interfaces between them... most definitely a book that scholars and activists concerned with global labor issues will want on their shelves"
