(p.186) Conclusion
Internal Affairs

This concluding chapter shows that NGOs can make simple advocacies politically salient; in relation to this some NGO with politically salient advocacy can remain less influential among other NGOs. For instance, politically salient NGOs, such as Amnesty International, Oxfam, and Human Rights Watch (HRW) HRW, have successfully advocated for greater oversight over small arms and light weapons. These cases are in direct contrast with the situation with the Anti-Slavery International (ASI), which remains less dominant in comparison with other human rights NGOs, even though ASI's anti-slavery agenda continues to be one of the few strong prohibitive norms that exist internationally. Hence, the cases when the political salience of organizations does not lead to a political salience of ideas, and vice versa. This shows why the organizational structure of NGOs is important.
