The annual Global Civil Society Yearbooks provide an indispensable guide to global civil society or civic participation and action around the world. The 2009 Yearbook explores the framings, strategies, and impacts of a range of actors on poverty and its alleviation. The overarching question is to whether such actors, in pressing for poverty alleviation actually achieve anything/empower the poor, or simply aid wealthy states in maintaining the status quo. The contributors are diverse, including scholars and practitioners from India, America, the UK, Australia, Thailand, and Mali.
The Global Civil Society Yearbook remains the standard work on all aspects of contemporary global civil society for activists, practitioners, students, and academics alike. It is essential reading for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the key actors, forms, and manifestations of global civil society around the world today.
