Since World War ii, international non-governmental organizations (ingos) have in general enjoyed significant development although their complete international legal status is not practically in place. However, during the recent course of accelerated economic globalization and waning national sovereignty, ingos’ development has been limited by the laws framed by the ingo-importing countries. This paper attempts to portray the dynamics of ingos’ legal environment by comparing the legal frameworks in different kinds of ingo-importing countries. It is concluded that different legal environments reflected the different clashes among sovereign states, global market and civil societies.
According to Ming Wang until2005the number of international ngos in China is between 3000~6000 including 2000 foundations 1000 service institutes 2500 commercial institute and 1000 institutes based on faith. http://www.chinadevelopmentbrief.org.cn/news-13651.html 2012-12-03.
