This brief reflects a multi-year dialogue between leading human rights theorists and high-level representatives of INGOs, organized by United Nations University and City University of Hong Kong, which studied the interaction between relatively rich and powerful INGOs and their poorer recipients; collaboration with governments that place severe restrictions on INGO activities; and the tension between expanding human rights INGO mandates to address social and economic problems and restricting their focus to violations of civil and political rights. It provides recommendations for human rights INGOs in the field and at the United Nations.
