Chapter Summary

Over the last fifteen years the organisational structure of SNV has changed profoundly and it is now a very different organisation from the JVP and JVC initiatives of 1963. While the first volunteers and SNV staff were exclusively Dutch nations, the number of non-Dutch SNVers grew rapidly after 1990: by 1999 the figure was 40% and this grew to 67% in 2004. Another major change was SNV's departure from project implementation and funding to become an organisation advising on capacity-building of meso-level organisations and government bodies. Its ambivalent relationship with the Ministry finally came to an end when SNV obtained independent status in 2002. These three changes form the core of SNV's history between 1995 and 2005 and are discussed in detail. These changes are so recent that the consequences are still unfolding and the interaction between the three areas of change may also lead to new and unforeseen developments.

Keywords: Dutch nations; meso-level organisations; SNV
