    [eng] Anne Le Naëlou — Understanding the professionalizing in NGO's : Some contribution from the sociology of professions. The general tendency to professionalize and market international solidarity during the 1990's and the increasing importance of the liberal model weakened the initial mobilizing bond in the ngo's and, instead, reactivated the sectoral and corporatist logics of the professions which govern their actions. Such a development is evident in the tendency to present technicality (expertise) and professional competence as a capital attribute of ngo's, at the expense of the social transformation goals which animate them. The prevailing functionalist approach limits the abilities of the NGO's to ensure the redeployment of competences and structuring that they require in dealing with specific projects of international solidarity.
