Membership Based Organizations of the Poor: <br> Theory, Experience and Policy
Some MBOPs have been remarkably successful, while others have failed. What structures and activities characterize MBOPs? What is meant by success? What factors account for success? In particular, what are the internal (governance structure and leadership) and external (policy environment) factors that account for success? Are these factors replicable across countries or even within countries? What are the constraints to successful MBOPs expanding, or to new ones being formed? What sort of policy environment enables the success of MBOPs, and the formation of successful MBOPs? What types of institutional reforms are needed to ensure the representation of the poor through their own MBOs? These are the types of questions to be addressed in this workshop.
