Many of these NGOs, which claim to promote human rights, democracy, and development are in reality engaged in intense political advocacy campaigns directed against Israel, in contravention of French governmental funding guidelines. And can they retain the cohesion and moral authority needed to influence the process of global governance? These are some of the questions addressed in this paper by Riva Krut.
