Drawing on a careful blend of qualitative and quantitative research techniques, the author provides not only a rare, people-centered account of a Jordanian development organization and its practices, from grass roots to the national level, but also an insider's critical reflections on a venture with which she has been involved since its inception—The Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD). Its evolution in rapidly changing domestic and international circumstances has provided the author with the unique opportunity to address a range of themes that today dominate the discourse of development, including participation, gender and development, micro-finance, and donor conditionality.

About the Author:

Basma bint al-Talal has chaired the Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development since 1977.

Review:

"This is a well-researched and well-written book... this book is a valuable addition to the literature on social development and the development process in Jordan, as well as on the growing and changing roles of civil society and NGOs... will be of great benefit to readers inside Jordan, as well as to researchers from outside the country... It is not possible within the confines of this short review to pay justice to this remarkable book." -Hisham Khatib, The Jordan Times

Book Description I.B.Tauris Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Jordan s development must be considered in three broad contexts which have profoundly shaped the process: the country s limited internal resouces, the political instability of the Middle East region and international policies, largely based on Western agendas, that have meant a continual need to mediate between aid donors and the cultural values and traditions of an Arab society. Drawing on a careful blend of qualitative and quantitative research techniques, the author provides not only a rare, people-centred account of a development organization and its practices, from grass roots to the national level, but also an insider s critical reflections on a venture with which she has been involved since its inception - The Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD), formerly known as the Queen Alia Jordanian Social Welfare Fund (QAF). For almost three decades the Fund has attempted to improve the quality of life in local communities. Seller Inventory # AA79781860649257
