This talk looks at the strategies Chinese NGOs employ to survive and operate in an authoritarian institutional environment. What happens when Chinese NGOs that are born and socialized in such a domestic context, "go out" to other jurisdictions with similar or varying regime types? Finally, I will suggest that the internationalization of Chinese NGOs will foster a more pluralized global civil society. Ultimately, this will require us to rethink salient precepts and practices in international development.
