Research Interests

Charles Doctoral research examines the relationship between NGO accountability, NGO performance assessment and the importance of the MDGs within the accountability and performance management practices. The study draws upon Bourdieu’s (1990) “logics of practice” theory to make sense of data from interviews with key informants, field observations and published resources from case organizations: one that attempts to meet the needs of children and another that attempts to achieve food security in Ghana, two key MDGs. Specifically, the study considers whether the UN MDGs impact upon the accountability and internal performance management practices of faith-based non-governmental organizations (NGOs) operating in Ghana.
