Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly discusses the acquisition of resources by human rights Domestic Non-Government Organisation (DNGOs) in the United States, Britain and Germany. The writers Wasby and Ovsiovich have remarked that understanding the ways in which human rights DNGOs acquire resources is important because it is a key to understanding other aspects of their activities. Similarly, Burstein and Epp have argued that a DNGO?s successful acquisition of resources is important because it often leads to it successfully mobilising law in defence of human rights. Because of such findings any credible investigation of human rights DNGOs needs to include an investigation of how they acquire resources. In this chapter this subject is investigated by comparing and critically analysing the types of resources DNGOs typically acquire and where they acquire them from using data from the case studies and the literature.
