Abstract [en]

What is global civil society, and what role does it play in world politics? Somesee grassroots organising transnationally, whereby marginalised groups pressurestates and corporations towards increased democracy and respect forhuman rights. Others hold that global civil society actors are instruments in aneo-colonial exercise of power over the global South, serving Northern valuesand political or economic interests.

This volume discusses the multifaceted character of global civil society,constituting a political space where a diversity of actors struggle over valuesand aims, and where power and resources are unequally distributed. It alsoaddresses how the space changes character with new global actors such asthe BRICS countries, and with the waged War on Terror. The volume authors –academics as well as development practitioners – describe civil society actorsfrom across the world and various forms of transnational politics, displayingthe complex and sometimes contradictory relations of power that are at play.
