International NGOs commonly divided into not mutually exclusive categories:
- Human rights
Historically little crossover, intellectual or otherwise, between rights and development categories, changing slowly with rights organizations beginning to pay attention to economic/social rights, not only civil/political rights, and development sector exploring rights-based approaches to development.
Author argues rights approach has important implications for development INGOs.
