ENGELBRECHT, Lambert K.; ORNELLAS, Abigail; MARTINEZ-ROMAN, María-Asunción  and  TORTOSA-MARTINEZ, Juan. NGOs in Spain and South Africa: in the line of two fires. Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2016, vol.52, n.4, pp.459-470. ISSN 2312-7198.

Changes in the social and economic landscape for NGOs are distinctly recognised in Spain and South Africa as a result of comparable formative and historical social welfare provision. NGOs in both countries are under siege, operating in the line of two fires, namely the global financial crisis, and the implementation and advancement of a neoliberal agenda. The need for a renewal of identity, activism, collaboration and partnership as well as an alignment of their roles in civil society with their visions, missions and core values is suggested towards ensuring the survival of NGOs.
