Generalists or Specialists? Understanding the Origins and Consequences of Variation in INGO Mission Scope 


International non-governmental organizations (INGOs) play a crucial role in the delivery of social services, often taking roles that states are unwilling or unable to fill. Yet INGOs vary considerably in the scope of their activities: some organizations focus narrowly on a particular issue or geographic region, whereas others develop a broader portfolio of projects. Similarly, some organizations use a variety of tactics, combining advocacy with service provision, whereas others specialize. Variation in mission scope – understood here as a continuum between ‘generalist’ and ‘specialist’ orientations – is not well understood. This webinar explores how conditions at INGO founding influence the breadth of mission scope that INGOs select. To examine variation in mission scope, we draw on a new and original dataset of INGO mission statements that is drawn from the tax records of American nonprofit organizations engaging in international activities.
