Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

GONGO stands for Government-operated Non-governmental organization, which may have been set up by governments to look like NGOs in order to qualify for outside aid. Often, GONGOs are set up by undemocratic governments to create confusion when NGOs seek to promote democracy in the country in question.[1]
