Article: Global Civil Society. Myth or Reality?
Join FutureChallenges.org for a video interview on global civil society with Prof. Helmut Anheier, PhD, Professor of Sociology and Dean at the Hertie School of Governance, Berlin. Does global civil society really exist or is it more like a cosmopolitan myth? What are its strengths and weaknesses? What global challenges can it tackle best? Does it bring more democracy and accountability to our world?
With over 21,000 non-governmental organizations registered with the Union of International Associations, global civil society is growing exponentially. Prof. Anheier, one of most authoritative academic voices on civil society, has accepted to offer an interview for FutureChallenges.org and to help us solve some of the puzzles behind the elusive concept of “global civil society”.
Comments and questions are welcome!
