    [eng] MISCELLANEOUS Erwan Quéinnec — The operational performance of humanitarian NGOs ; an analysis featuring institutional stakes . After two decades of almost unconditional success, ngos are now being questioned on their operational success mainly by funding agencies. So while the need for humanitarian services for beneficiary societies remains unchallenged, consensus still lacks on ways to conceive them. Indeed, beyond exhortations, humanitarian action is also belied by incentives, sanctions and institutional constraints. The author maintains that humanitarian action could in fact thrive without being really assessed, and as such appears to be resorting to a « resource economy » model.
