Overview

Civil society, or citizen's groups, have taken centre stage in international policy debates and global problem solving. They hold out the promise of a global community and global governance. This volume, by leading scholars and participants, shows how to understand the changes that are occurring, particularly in relation to the international institutions involved. It includes case studies from all the major social movements of the 1990s.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Twenty contributions from Edwards (The Ford Foundation), Gaventa (U. of Sussex) and others discuss global citizen action. An ethical framework for civil society organizations is presented in the introductory chapters. Five contributions cover global citizen action in relation to international financial institutions, particularly the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. A section of case studies examines major global movements of the last decade, such as those opposing land mines, promoting children's rights, and protecting the environment. Annotation c.
