Thanks for getting back to me.
I've been involved in a number of international policy issues, and
I've seen first hand both the extent and the limits of NGO
involvement. They rarely can get all they want, but they can be very
influential at putting certain issues on the policy agenda.
Here are a few examples:
USA (Texas): Further Information on Death penalty / Legal concern:
Javier Suárez Medina.
Amnesty International, a prominent NGO, has been actively involved in
this case regarding the duty of one nation to notify the Embassy of
another nation if one of its nationals is scheduled to be executed.
The case has soured relations between the US and Mexico, and is
recasting international policy.
Why the EU and the USA must reform their subsidies, or pay the price
OXFAM has been very influential in highlighting issues of national
subsidies in rich nations that exacerbate poverty in the 3rd world.
The issue has steadily gained prominence in international policy
Human Rights Watch has campaigned actively on the long-neglected issue
of child labor, and partly as a result of their actions, many nations
have adopted new laws and policies regulating international trade in
goods made with child labor.
AFRICA: Debt Activists Keep the Champagne on Ice
The cancellation of 3rd world debt has become an increasingly visible
international policy issue, and one that has been actively championed
by some NGOs, as this article discusses.
