    self-reflect on themselves

    Helllo everyone

    I'd like to ask about the meaning of "self-reflect on themselves" in the following context:

    NGOs (non-governmental organizations) relatively recently started to massively self-reflect on themselves as a sector by holding NGO forums in 2005 and 2006. The latter especially has focused on issues of internal cooperation. In a survey conducted in 2006 of NGOs only 45% answered “yes” to the question “whether NGOs are cooperating enough with each other”.

    Does "self-reflect on themselves" mean "consider themselves", i.e. NGOs started to consider themselves as a sector?

    I feel it is more that they began to think about what they do and what they want to be.

    I wouldn't suggest using it as a template sentence. "On themselves" is redundant. You can't self-reflect on someone else.
