Summary

Due to the past decade's increasing impact of civil society networks and campaigns on global policy, the transnational civil society has become a continually emerging phenomenon. Transnational Civil Society: An Introduction provides a clear and accessible introduction to the history, characteristics, and achievements of influential transnational civil society networks, coalitions, and movements.
Providing perspectives from both developing and industrialized countries, editors Srilatha Batliwala and L. David Brown create the impetus for an in-depth analysis of the forces that have shaped social movements such as globalism, economic and political power structures, and organization by non-state actors. The contributors are globally experienced activist-scholars and reflective practitioners presently engaged in these issues. Together these sources form a comprehensive introduction to civil transnationalism through the synthesis of diverse positions as the contributors raise ideas and discussion on social transformation.
For students, practitioners, and activist alike, Transnational Civil Society: An Introduction offers comprehensible descriptions of transnational initiatives working toward effective and sustainable solutions to problems involving the environment, human rights, women's rights, and economic justice.
