Abstract:

This paper asks the question: what is the current state of distance between NGOs and indigenous populations? More specifically, to what degree is the directive of social justice interpreted differently across divides of geography, socio-economic class, race, and ethnicity?This paper starts conceptually with ideas that analyze how much of the economic development policy directed from the Northern hemisphere (Escobar: 1995; Jeong: 2000; Roy: 2001) as well as development directed largely from within Third World nations, with the influence of Northern lending agencies, such as the World Bank and the I.M.F. (Roy: 2001), has been less beneficial to Third World populations than its creators envisioned. The of idea of affects of ideals falling short of their intentions is applied conceptually to the desire for the Northern hemisphere to raise the quality of social, economic, environmental, and political standards for indigenous populations using NGOs. Following Arturo Escobar?s cataloguing of the different suggestions people from the Third World for may have for creating policies to solve problems in their communities, dealing with their own issues, this essay will use this developmental model to examine how the directive of social justice from the Northern hemisphere may or may be at the point where it fulfills the needs of indigenous and marginalized populations. Since development and social justice agendas have been fairly evenly applied as directives across geographical space, this essay will examine whether or not the agenda of indigenous peoples has been varied or consistent across geographical divides. After demonstrating a variance or similarity, this paper will look at the distance that this data demonstrates through theories of aesthetics. This paper will also triangulate the findings of the abovementioned research by contrasting these findings with research data that will articulate whether or not this distance is the greatest threat to marginalized Third World populations, in face of the overarching, well intended though destructive development strategies. The goal of this is to suggest the amount of critical evaluation that should be applied to North-South interactions of social justice and development. Especially important to the conclusion will be whether North South interactions centering around social justice deserve more or less attention than North South interactions of international development policy.
