Michael Jennings is a lecturer and researcher in East African politics, and the politics of development. A major focus of his work has been on the role of voluntary agency activity in development in East Africa, including NGOs, missions and faith-based organizations more widely. He is interested in the multiple roles which ""development"" as a process and as an idea takes on, and the synergies between power, politics and development in the North and South. He has worked extensively on the role of civil society in development, and has research interests in health issues in sub-Saharan Africa.
"Jennings has written an interesting book dealing with the role of NGOs in development, focusing on the role of Oxfam in Tanzania. I highly recommend it. Given the increasing role played by Northern NGOs in the promotion of civil society and development in the global South, it is a book that could have been written about NGO work in any country in the developing world."
