image of Engaging Civil Society
The rapid pace of globalization has led to the increasing interdependence of member states of the United Nations to achieve sustainable development objectives, including the eradication of extreme poverty, environmental protection, access to basic services and livelihoods and the promotion of economic growth and opportunities. The book attempts to examine the changing roles of civil society in global and national governance. It identifies factors that influence the effectiveness of civil society in promoting democratic governance by addressing how the rapid pace of globalization has increased the interdependence of governments, the private sector, and civil society organizations.



Civil society innovations in governance leadership: International demonstrations of integral development, the technology of participation and social artistry

As a primary governance actor, civil society has a unique and critical role to play in bringing new approaches, public accountability and diverse perspectives into policy formulation and programme development. Civil society can create and demonstrate innovative leadership processes to enhance participatory or democratic governance. As an alternative to a “command-and-control” leadership style, innovative leadership is facilitative, participatory, collaborative, creative, systemic and profound.
