The Concept and Practice of Civil Society in International Development
This volume provides an insightful overview both of the concept of civil society and its operationalisation. The book presents comprehensive analyses of practical considerations such as capacity building and monitoring and evaluation of civil society support programmes. It is an edited collection of papers, discussions, and comment arising out of INTRAC’s 10th Anniversary Conference held in December 2001. The meeting included representatives from official donor organisations, foundations, NGOs (Northern, Southern and Eastern), trade unions, research groups and civil society umbrella groups, as well as consultants and academics. The result is this very rich synthesis of viewpoints from a wide variety of stakeholders.
