How is philanthropy and humanitarian work regulated in India? This talk explores recent efforts by NGOs to reform laws governing the non-profit sector, alongside government efforts to regulate foreign philanthropy and domestic NGO-work. Based on ethnographic research with an advocacy NGO in Delhi, it explores how law becomes a language of activism in the intersection of transnational humanitarian efforts and state regulation.
