Les catégories à l'épreuve des " associations réelles " : Ni tout à fait laïques et développementalistes, ni tout à fait confessionnelles et de bienfaisance. Etude de cas de l'association Terre des Hommes Syrie

Abstract : Testing categories against " real associations " : neither entirely " secular " and developmentalist, nor entirely religious and charitable Confessional NGOs versus non-religious NGOs ? Developmental NGOs versus charities and humanitarian organizations ? The categories for thinking about, classifying and comparing different kinds of associative structures have significantly multiplied since the 1990s. To what extent are these analytical frames really relevant ? It is around this question that we will articulate our reflection within the framework of the present article. In order to attempt to answer the question we will consider the case of the NGO Terre des hommes, Syria. Our aim is to demonstrate the flexibility of these categories as well as to show how they overlap in the actual daily practices of associations.
