Description/Summary

Eric Mielants (with Jeffrey Kentor) is a contributing author, "Connecting the Global and Local: The Impact of Globalization on Civil Society: 1990-2000," p. 27-52.

Book description: While contributing to social inequality and environmental degradation, recent global transformations have also strengthened civil society groups opposing these trends. Yet, as they need to transform the existing social order from within, groups struggling for social justice face various strategic dilemmas. The articles in this volume examine these dilemmas and discuss possible solutions. Issues addressed include North-South disparities in what has been called "global civil society", and the precarious division of labor between local grassroots organizers and transnational coalition-builders.
