This chapter provides a glimpse of the strategies and decisions made within the humanitarian marketplace. It introduces World Vision International, which is one of the dominant organizations providing secular relief around the world. It then studies the behavior of international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) and faith-based organizations (FBOs) in the humanitarian world, and explains the practices and strategies of humanitarians. The next section discusses the globalization and marketing of humanitarianism and the increased salience of faith. It also looks at the extent of control public donors have over humanitarian resources and the market for private donors, which is the largest source of revenue for most FBOs and INGOs.

Keywords:   humanitarian marketplace, practices, strategies, World Vision International, secular relief, international nongovernmental organizations, faith-based organizations, public donors, private donors
