Thursday, 03 March 2016 04:16

The second half of the twentieth century has evidenced the extraordinary advancement of numbers of international organizations. Now, scholars argue how globalization has influenced the interdependency of actors in international relations.

In international development cooperation, this trend has been observed for decades. Non-State Actors (NSA), namely international non-governmental organizations (INGOs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), private sectors including multinational corporations, and philanthropies have now evolved to show themselves as more influential actors.
