Interest Group on NGOs and Non-Profits Roundtable: Responsibilities of Working Around, On, Through, With, and For NGOs and Non-Profits



In this roundtable, participants will present on the distinctive responsibilities that can accompany anthropological work around, on, through, with or for NGOs and Non-Profits. Under what circumstances should we seek to align ourselves with the NGOs and non-profits “around” which work on issues of shared interest? How might critical research “on” the work of NGOs and non-profits enable greater accountability to others, including the people for whom this work is ostensibly done? What obligations come with working “through” NGOs and non-profits, i.e. using their resources, insights, and existing networks to launch projects that may or may not be of any use to them? How can and should anthropologists’ responsibilities to the NGOs and non-profits “with” which they collaborate be governed by existing codes of professional or institutional ethics? Given all we’ve learned of the complexities of NGOs and non-profits, how should we be preparing ourselves and our students for careers working “for” these organizations?
