This chapter identifies the key changes in the organisational environment that fall mainly within the globalisation of governance institutions in two interrelated areas: public management and social policy. The main argument presented in this chapter is that globalisation, along with the steadily increasing urgency of humanitarian development, have forced the international non-governmental organisations (INGOs) to recognise the importance of their ‘strategy-structure configurations’. The chapter also includes a discussion on the importance of the connection between New Public Management (NPM) and multilateralism. The implications of global governance change for INGO management is studied in the latter portion of the chapter.

Keywords: organisational environment; multilateralism; globalisation; governance institutions; public management; social policy; humanitarian development; INGOs; New Public Management; global governance change
