International NGO's - Helpful or Harmful?

Sep 21, 2017, 5:45 pm

Americans have grown accustomed to the image of “coming to the rescue” when other nations are in trouble. Whenever there is a natural disaster, deadly disease spreading, children working as slave labor, etc., we see images of the U.S. pouring in aid via international NGOs to help the country in need. We celebrate Americans as brave, heroic, and virtuous for involving itself in these foreign affairs.

Join us for a conversation that questions if the actions of American-led international NGOs and American voluntourism helps or hurts another country’s sustainability? And what role should American-led international NGOs have on foreign policy?
