NGOs, Civil Society and the State
Building democracy in transitional societies
NGOs, Civil Society and the State contains papers by both practitioners and researchers that examine the role of NGOs in civil society. It includes general thematic papers on civil society, case studies from Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe, and papers that analyse initiatives undertaken by Northern NGOs and donors in democratisation programmes in the South. The stimulus for this book was an INTRAC workshop that provided an opportunity to reflect on the implications of the new policy agenda on civil society for NGOs, with particular reference to countries undergoing major political transition.
