Globalization, Philanthropy, and Civil Society: Projecting Institutional Logics Abroad

eds. David C. Hammack and Steven Heydemann
The result of a capstone event held by the SSRC Program on Philanthropy and the Nonprofit Sector, this book reflects pioneering efforts to study the global movement of ideas and institutions. Chapters deal with topics of significant contemporary importance, including initiatives to address the AIDS epidemic in East Africa; to protect the peoples and ecosystems of the Amazon; to advance the “truth and reconciliation” process in South Africa; to promote “civil society” in Hungary, Russia, and Kyrgyzstan; to advocate for environmental protection in the United States, Great Britain, Germany, and Japan; and to spread Rotary clubs and encourage “social entrepreneurship” throughout the world. These essays highlight a wide range of research, paying close attention to the realities of particular situations and to current thinking about general processes. Buy from Amazon.
