This book is the result of case studies conducted as part of the International Network on Strategic Philanthropy, which focus on the role of philanthropy in the globalization process and in lesser developed economies. Throughout, they emphasize the lessons in innovation that can be taken from them, and together demonstrate that emerging philanthropic institutions can develop their own methods and offer criteria that the Western world might learn from.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"For those who care about the field of philanthropy, this is a rich resource … . successfully initiates a better understanding of how the charitable impulse develops at the juncture of culture, various structural systems, and the present moment in time. … U.S. domestic private foundations that are curious about implementing new approaches in their communities would also learn much from this volume. … The stories and lessons are good ones, worthy of retelling, and provide a foundation, so to speak, for further research." (Ruth Masterson, Voluntas, Vol. 19, 2008)
