Summary This chapter presents analysis of new primary research data collected on INGOs working inside Myanmar. In particular, it looks at the contextualisation they make to common international development approaches, in order to attain greatest effectiveness in this specific context. This research is based on in-depth interviews of forty-seven key informants from INGOs, UN organisations and local NGOs, working within Myanmar. The key finding is that INGO's believe that, with appropriate contextualisation, their effectiveness is not as heavily restricted in Myanmar as is commonly perceived, particularly in addressing the worst impact of extreme poverty in communities, but also in areas such as advocacy and capacity development of the emerging civil society.
