Global Civil Society 2004-05 will be launched at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Tuesday 5 October with a debate on reshaping politics in an uncertain world, between Professor Kenneth Anderson, Dr Heba Raouf Ezzat, Professor Lord Giddens and Professor Mary Kaldor.
The war in Iraq brought global politics into the living rooms of ordinary people around the world in 2003-04. This defining event, which influenced the domestic agenda in many countries, may change the way people perceive power and the politics of power.
Global Civil Society 2004-05, the latest issue in the Global Civil Society Yearbook series, addresses the reshaping of global politics in the aftermath of the war and covers such key issues as the role oil and activism, international trades unions, philanthropy and the new pioneers of global civil society.
Professor Kenneth Anderson is based at the Washington College of Law, American University and the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace, Stanford University
Dr Heba Raouf Ezzat is based at Cairo University, Egypt
Professor Lord Giddens was director of LSE from 1997 to 2003 and is emeritus professor of sociology at LSE
