The purpose of this essay is for you to analyze and compare two NGOs that work in the same general area.
You are to find this list of NGOs.
You need to closely study any two Web sites of any two different NGOs that are listed within the same topic. In studying these topics, you will want to notice three things about the two sites that are similar, and three things that are different. You’ll also want to note any references on either Web site that talk about any of the three branches of the US Federal government–if they don’t, make sure you say that in your essay. You’ll want to use the ideas from our discussions about Web sites, interest groups, and bias, and analyze each Web site using those ideas. Finally, using any two major ideas from our discussion of Foreign Policy, you’ll want to explain which NGO seems to be the most effective, and why.
