Abstract

In this chapter, the authors trace the development of non-profit organizations in China. They then identify the context to, and characteristics of communications in the NGO sector focusing on advocacy INGOs and national NGOs. The importance of using a variety of tactics to influence change, from an in-depth case report to digital communications, is illustrated through the case study about Greenpeace’s Hungry Coal campaign. Some challenges of INGO communications are further explored in an interview with an anonymous campaigner.
