This paper explores patterns of governance in transnational
development non-governmental organisation (NGO) coalitions.
Governance is a term that has increased in usage during the
last decade; it has been used in a variety of ways, by a
variety of actors. Here, governance is broken down into two
elements—governance as a purposive activity, and governance
as an explanatory framework. This is an empirically
grounded paper which focuses on the mechanisms of
governance as a purposive activity, illustrated by interviews with four transnational development NGO coalitions. The principal aim of this research is to illustrate the workings and mechanics of governance.
