Comparative Perspectives on Civil Society (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 3 weeks.


Comparative Perspective on Civil Society examines the relationship between civil society and government in many countries and how this association might develop further in the future in the areas of social, economic, and political development. Several experts explore the environment of this relationship, the strategies adopted by national and regional governments to influence the behavior of civil society organizations, as well as public policies that guide the parties toward achieving sustainable development. The book also examines the role of civil society in the sustainable development processes in Brazil, Japan, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Sierra Leone, the Philippines, Ireland, India, and Morocco. Comparison of the activities of civil society organizations in these nations helps the reader to understand and analyze the theories that have been proposed to explain how civil society and government ought to function.
