* A refreshing study of capacity building through various local perspectives
* Includes studies from Mozambique, Bosnia, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, Haiti, and Guatemala

By critically examining the dilemma from local perspectives, Patronage or Partnership finds genuine hope amidst the prevailing rhetoric and confusion.
