Abstract:

This study examines the effects of the activities of two international humanitarian organizations – the International Rescue Committee and Malteser International – on local peace and conflict dynamics in conflict zones in the Eastern DRC. It studies both organizations comparatively from the perspectives of its management and three local constituencies/groups: local communities, local civil society organizations, and local authorities. It also compares NGO literature of intended and unintended effects of humanitarian action with local perceptions. In this way, the research contributes to an empirically grounded critique of IR and organization theory on NGOs. The text is based on empirical research, in particular expert interviews and (local) focus groups that will take place in summer 2007.
