This chapter summarises the argument of the book and returns to the questions about global order raised in the introduction from the perspective of the sociology of fields of specialised practice. It discusses the form of indirect domination created by the market for projects in humanitarian relief and in some domestic forms of service delivery. Having described the specific mediation, which the field of humanitarian relief NGOs provides between donors and distant suffering, this chapter outlines some of the implications for a politics we can develop vis-a-vis this mediation. It argues that we need a politics not just of ideas but a politics of organizational practice.
