Dutch NGOs and Private Sector Partnerships


Abstract

NGOs are increasingly working with the business sector as partner for enhancing the effectiveness of their own development projects and vice versa. This results in an increasing amount of Profit-Nonprofit Partnerships (PNPs). In her research project, Anke van der Heul aimed to better understand the nature of such PNPs from the perspective of four Dutch NGOs involved in development partnerships. Her research provides insights on NGOs’ motivation to engage with the private sector, their perceptions and expectations on businesses as partners, the roles and function of NGOs and business in partnerships and whether NGOs consider a specific role for governments to support PNPs
