Global Civil Society Yearbook 2002 - Global Civil Society Yearbook (Paperback)
|Format:||Paperback 416 pages|
This yearbook, the second of its kind, follows the lead of its predecessor, engaging in fundamental and topical debates about global civil society, giving more explicit attention this year to the role of civil society in different political and cultural contexts around the world. The opening chapter discusses contemporary issues, focusing in particular on the various impacts of 11 September on global civil society. Other essays consider global civil society and religion and global civil society's relation with entrenched corporate and state power structures. Case studies examine global civil society activities on AIDS and other diseases, on the International Criminal Court and in relation to corporate social responsibility. Further chapters will discuss how global civil society is organised, the role of the media in giving access to global public debates, and the role of diaspora networks in the politics of global cities.
