Civil Society and Governance
The Potential Of Civil Society In Influencing Governance Has Gained Currency In Academic And Policy Debates In The Recent Times. This Becomes Particularly Relevant In An Old Democracy Like India Where The State Has Not Been Able To Meet The Need For Water, Shelter, Education, And As Recent Events Show Even The Food Requirements Of A Large Number Of People, But Where A Democratic Framework Of The State Provides Space And Freedom For People To Engage In Collective Action To Question The State, To Demand A Revision In Policy, To Implement The Laws Which Are So Elaborately Of Its Institutions. This Makes The Interface Between Civil Society And Governance In India Somewhat Different From Countries Which Share A Different Political, Economic And Social Context. This Book Shows How Civil Society Actors Are Being Able To Influence Governance Positively, As Well As Their Limitations Which Inhibit The Impact Of This Interface.
