This paper investigates the approaches and methods applied to NGO capacity building in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo during parallel and ongoing experiences of internationally determined post-conflict social, political and economic rehabilitation and transition. Capacity building in both settings is a new term, having arrived with equally novel concepts such as the ‘NGO’, ‘civil society’, ‘democracy’; and ‘good governance’ as part of a broader development discourse driving efforts to re-establish social cohesion and fashion new states according to Western-style liberal democracy.
