Expatriate Training in International Nongovernmental Organizations: A Model for Research
Chang, Wei-Wen
Human Resource Development Review, v4 n4 p440-461 2005
In light of the massive tsunami relief efforts that were still being carried out by humanitarian organizations around the world when this article went to press, this article points out a lack of human resources development research in international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) and proposes a conceptual model for future empirical research. This article reviews the three related research areas of NGO history, volunteer training, and expatriate development; discusses the possibility of integrating the theory from these three areas; and finally builds a model for further empirical studies for expatriate training in INGOs. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
