In search of civil society : market reform and social change in contemporary China by Gordon White( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1978, China has pursued sweeping economic change in an officially sponsored transition from a Stalinist centrally planned economy to a socialist market economy. China's reformers have highlighted the need to curb the awesome power of the Leninist state and change the balance of power between state and economy, state and society. In practice, the economic reforms have set in train a process of potentially fundamental social and institutional change in China which is creating new socio-economic forces, shifting power in their direction, and raising the possibility of political transformation. This book explores the extent to which this experience can be described and understood in terms of the idea of 'civil society', defined in sociological terms as the emergence of an autonomous sphere of voluntary associations capable of organizing the interests of emergent socio-economic groups and counterbalancing the hitherto unchallenged dominance of the Marxist-Leninist state
Gender and civil society : transcending boundaries by Jude Howell( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last two decades there has been considerable enthusiasm for the concept of civil society amongst researchers, practitioners and activists. Despite this enthusiasm for the concept, however, the gendered nature of civil society and the impact of feminist organising on civil society has received minimal attention. Gender and Civil Society seeks to address this gap and considers: How does the political environment and nature of the state shape the way women organise, the issues they address, and their capacity to affect changes in state policies on gender? Is the women's movement structurally different from other civil society organisations? Does the gender lens alter our vision of civil society? The chapters in this volume each pursue two or more of these questions and cover a diversity of contexts, including the US, East and Central Europe, China, the Middle East, Africa, South East Asia, Central America and Chile. This book not only draws together the concepts of gender and civil society, but also adopts an international perspective, highlighting the diverse trajectories of women organising in different country contexts and the historical, cultural and political speci.cities of civil society. Jude Howell is Professor and Director of the Centre for Civil Society at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Diane Mulligan is a freelance gender and development consultant based in Indonesia

Non-governmental public action and social justice( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Arab Spring put non-governmental public action centre-stage in the drive for greater social justice. Governments, politicians and international institutions increasingly court non-governmental public actors, engaging them in policy dialogue, inviting them to participate in the delivery of social services, and looking to them to re-invigorate democratic politics. This unique collection explores the different organizational forms, strategies and tactics that activists adopt to pursue social justice goals and analyses how histories of resistance impinge on contemporary activism in both positive and negative ways. The authors examine how established corporatist trades unions struggle to reform as new forms of labour resistance challenge their legitimacy and proximity to government. They analyse how non-governmental public actors negotiate various 'civil society dilemmas' that emerge in the new spaces for collaboration opened up by government, focusing particularly on threats to their values, autonomy and legitimacy. They also explore the efforts of non-governmental public actors to secure greater justice in the sphere of production and distribution, be that through co-operatives or through consumer rights activism around access to essential drugs."--Publisher's website

New democratic trends in China? : reforming the all-China federation of trade unions by Jude Howell( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last two decades multi-candidate direct elections for village committees have spread across China, attracting considerable attention both within China and from external observers. Though the Communist Party has resisted the spread of direct elections upwards to township and provincial levels, village committee elections form part of a broader scenario of internal Party reform that aims at enhancing the accountability, probity and representativeness of Party and government leaders. It is against this background that the All-China Federation of Trade Unions (ACFTU) has also joined the fray and initiated direct elections for grassroots trade unionists. This Working Paper examines the rise of direct elections in the ACFTU, their significance for the reform of Chinas sole trade union federation and for improving workers conditions, and their broader implications for processes of governance in China. The first section outlines the diverse pressures on the ACFTU to reform and the various initiatives taken to this end. It then traces the emergence of direct trade union elections at grassroots level in China, sketching the arguments used to promote, constrain and resist their implementation. In the third section the paper focuses on the case of grassroots direct trade union elections in Guangdong province, highlighting both the variations in practice and the political complexities of the process. Finally, it reflects on the implications of these findings for the future development of the ACFTU, workers rights and broader processes of governance. The paper draws upon documentary research and fieldwork carried out in China between 2003 and 2004
