dc.description.alternativeAbstractThere are tens of thousands of NGOs in Central Asia. The United Nations acknowledge their importance because these organizations are capable of making a significant contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals set in 2015. Despite this, NGOs are struggling for survival since they have no financial means to continue their existence successfully. Financial resources offered by foreign countries and social contracts with the governments of the states they operate in might seem to be a great solution to the problem, but they make NGOs representative. To avoid representativeness and to become sustainable financially, NGOs start carrying economic activities as the legal environment for this is quite inclusive. Further thought shows that things like soft power of donor countries, wicked ODA policies, and the Law on Foreign Agents make economic activities a matter of great urgency. The research shows what the most pressing problems of NGOs are, what forces make NGOs find alternative sources of financial means, and offers a solution based on positive case studies. Three theories of international relations are used in the research to picture the realities in which NGOs operate.-
