Johanna Siméant-Germanos

Through the study of the internationalization of four French NGOs, the chapter nuances the somewhat idealistic hypothesis of the flourishing of a global civil society through value diffusion. It also examines what this internationalization owes to the competition for human and financial resources – a process that can lead to important problems in terms of homogenizing practices and organizational cultures. This process is however not a sign of the irrelevance of states as national legislations and cultures keep a strong influence both on these NGOs’ identities and in the reasons for their internationalization, as the more and more intense competition for comparative advantage also results from a remaining state fragmentation.
