    [eng] Pascal Dauvin — Being a professional of the humanitarian or how to compose with an imposed framework. This contribution aims at showing how the professionalizing of NGO's is a logic imposed by funding agencies and by the countries beneficiaries of aid. This manner of professionalizing is however not straight forward for expatriates who do not perceive the NGO's as organisations that function according to strict « managerial » terms. Considering actions observed in the field, the actions of NGO's thus appear as determined by trial and error or arrangements depending on the identity of the actors and the contexts of their intervention.
