NGOs Crisis Management and Conflict Resolution: Measuring the Impact of NGOs on Intergovernmental Organisation

Daniela Irrera will focus in her lecture on the relationship between non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and intergovernmental organisations (IGOs). The issue of NGOs’ participation in the decision-making processes of intergovernmental IGOs is essential to understand new activities undertaken by NGOs, including their participation in multilateral humanitarian intervention operations, crisis management and conflict resolution. Theoretical discourse is underpinned by empirical data from a survey of representatives from 28 humanitarian NGOs and networks of NGOs that are active in the fields of humanitarian assistance and peace building, as well as conflict transformation and mediation. It demonstrates that the role of non-state actors in the deployment of humanitarian interventions is destined to grow in the near future and promotes a broader understanding of such a development.

Paper will be circulated among registered participants.
