Borders among Activists

This concluding chapter argues that national origin plays a critical role in determining how international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) raise funds, embrace professionalism, engage in advocacy, relate to governments, and choose issues. National origin determines how INGOs approach the work of human rights activism and humanitarian relief. It shapes organizational practices in different ways, according to the particularities of the sectors in which the INGOs operate. In particular, the conflict in Iraq exemplifies how national origin affects INGO activities. Because the United States was belligerent to Iraq, human rights as well as humanitarian groups are forced to engage in politics to fulfill their call.

Keywords:   international nongovernmental organizations, national origin, organizational practices, human rights activism, Iraq conflict
