Where Have All the Borders Gone?
This introductory chapter presents three prominent nongoverment organizations—Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), Oxford Committee for Famine Relief (Oxfam International), and Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (CARE)—that convened a donor conference to discuss Haiti's reconstruction and development after the nation was hit by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake. These three charitable groups had decades of experience in Haiti and all faced the same situations, but throughout the year following the earthquake, each organization focused on distinct aspects of the crisis and used different tactics to make their point. In relation to this case, the book details the organizational life at many of the world's leading international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) in order to understand the causes and consequences of this variation in organizational practices.
