Biography

Catherine Herrold’s research examines how nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), philanthropic foundations, and grassroots groups work to advance change in the Middle East. She has conducted field work in Egypt, Palestine, Jordan, and Syria. In Egypt, she studies the strategies that Egyptian NGOs and foundations are using to advance the aims of the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings. In Palestine, her work focuses on how grassroots groups are working to revive a spirit of voluntarism and solidarity within civil society. Her work has appeared in Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Social Problems, Nonprofit Policy Forum, and VOLUNTAS: International Journal of Voluntary and Nonprofit Organizations. Her book manuscript, Delta Democracy: Pathways to Incremental Civic Revolution in Egypt and Beyond, is currently under review.
