Discussion questions included

  • Many faith actors don’t want to be seen as FBOs but rather as non-state actors. Is this simply a development trend?
  • The preliminary observations suggest that instrumentalization of FBOs for SDG will not work. What would you say would be a good alternative approach rather than instrumentalization?
