Abstract [en]

Power to the People? discusses the concept of civil society and its relevance across the world. A strong civil society has over the past decades been considered of increasing importance for the protection of human rights, processes of democratisation and popular participation, as well as for demanding transparency and accountability of states. This volume brings together authors from all continents – scholars as well as practitioners within NGOs and bilateral development cooperation – to examine the varying forms in which people engage politically outside the state and political parties to pursue their concerns and interests. To what extent, and during what circumstances, does mobilisation within civil society promote positive social change?

With broad regional comparisons, country-specific case studies, and theoretical discussions, the volume offers a rich and significant contribution to the understanding of civil society and its multifaceted appearances throughout the world.
