Les ONG au Conseil des droits de l'homme : une approche géographique et quantitative

Abstract : Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) became a major actor in Intergovernmental Organizations in the last decades, especially in the United Nations system. Based on empirical treatments regarding NGOs presence at the United Nations Human Rights Council, this communication provides a quantitative and geographical approach of these actors –an organisational typology is also tested, enabling to differentiate centralized vs. umbrella NGOs. Its main results show a strong hierarchy amongst NGOs: if the main Occidental NGOs are able to play a continuous role, this is not the case for others. Distance between NGOs and the Human Rights Council, and its related cost, partially explains this hierarchy. Finally, NGOs driven by governments disrupt the institution’s normative ambitions.
