Civil Society Working Papers Number 26
Center for Civil Society (CCS) 2006
The paper begins by examining the overt backlash against civil society organizations, and in particular NGOs receiving foreign funding, that is emerging in authoritarian regimes and reluctant or ‘managed’ democracies such as China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Nigeria. It then considers the more implicit forms of backlash such as the disciplining and taming of civil society, which began in the late 1990s but have intensified in the context of LWOT. We consider how the LWOT has...

International Center for Not-for-Profit Law 1999
This is an exciting time for not-for-profit, independent, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs)#1 -- not only in the Arab World, but everywhere. Countries around the world are seeking to encourage the growth of an independent, voluntary not-for-profit sector -- sometimes known as civil society -- to serve as a partner -- with the government and for-profit sectors -- for social and economic development. NGOs are moving beyond charity and self-help activities, and are increasingly being asked to...

CIVICUS 2005
At the September 2004 Strategic Retreat of the Board, it was decided that CIVICUS would give greater focus on its role as a relationship builder of civil society. This decision was taken for two primary reasons: There was a need to break down the barriers within civil society and this was a role that CIVICUS was already playing and was regularly called upon do so. However additional rationale also gesture towards the importance of this role of CIVICUS. There are few...
