This book makes an original contribution to the subject in three major ways. First, new evidence is reported resulting from field research in Asia and Africa by a team of social scientists from the Open University and their collaborators. Second, the focus is mainly on NGOs in Asia and Africa; since environmental policies usually emanate from, and are affected by, an international political context. There is attention also to the international linkages between Southern NGOs and their Northern colleagues. Third, the original research reported here relates to important theoretical issues in the academic literatures of comparative politics and the social sciences more generally.
