This paper, referring to the NGO Médecins Sans Frontières, analyses its system of reporting by comparing direct reports produced by the international headquarters with some reports of the national branches in Europe. This work tries to assess the readability from an international and transnational perspective. It aims to see if the report is readable by all donors and highlights the transnational connections construed between the individual national offices. The paper tries to verify whether the social values of single European nations are reflected in the national reports of MSF and produce some differences in the ways the annual reports are written and presented.
