Chapter Summary

This chapter is an overview and critical analysis of the tactical choices that Domestic Non-Government Organisations (DNGOs) make from the strategies available to them. In order to achieve this a typology of DNGO tactics is firstly put forward to aid the understanding of the material. Then, it outlines and analyses the tactics of each of the case studies (the American case studies, the British case studies, and the German case studies) to facilitate useful comparison. The chapter discusses some of the variables that influence the tactical decisions of the case studies within the exposition of each case study. The tactical decisions made by DNGOs are loosely divided into first order, second order and third order tactics. The only major deviation from the Comprehensive Tactical Stance (CTS) by the British case studies seems to be the limited extent that they make use of the European Court of Justice?s human rights jurisdiction.

Keywords: Britain; Comprehensive Tactical Stance (CTS); Domestic Non-Government Organisation (DNGO); Germany; human rights; tactical choices; United States
