Paved with Good Intentions by Nikolas Barry-Shaw and Dru Oja Jay

Paved

“NGOs are as Canadian as hockey,” a 1988 Parliamentary report declared. Few institutions embody the image of Canada’s international benevolence like non-governmental organizations devoted to development abroad. But do the actions of Canadian NGOs genuinely match this perception? Ranging from poverty in Africa to turmoil in Haiti, from Israeli-Palestinian peace talks to the Afghanistan war, Paved with Good Intentions uncovers the darker side of the role played by NGOs.
