Global Civil Society 2011

Inspired by the globality of justice concerns in the 21st century, Global Civil Society 2011 focuses on how civil society actors around the world are framing, contesting and promoting ideas about justice, as well as their strategies to tackle the myriad injustices people face. It identifies an important shift in the globalisation of concerns about justice – citizens may claim benefits from the nation state, but increasingly groups interacting globally are collectivizing a sense of injustice. In this way global civil society has created and expanded new spaces to reinstall justice as inspiration and arbiter of laws. Combining activist and academic accounts of contemporary struggles, this yearbook provides critical insight into how civil society is remaking justice in a global arena, beyond the confines of the nation state.

Global Civil Society 2011 is published by Palgrave Macmillan (www.palgrave.com|). Previously the Yearbook was published by Sage (www.sagepub.co.uk|) and the Oxford University Press (www.oup.com|) Purchase your copy here. |
