This course is an overview of civil society around the world. The main theme of the course is civil society's role in mediating the dynamic interaction between the society and the state. We will examine the full range of civil society from local volunteer associations to international nongovernmental organizations, exploring the ways that these organizations influence governmental policy as well as how they are affected by governmental authority. The course will examine civil society in the advanced democracies of North America, Europe, and Asia, and well as in several developing countries in different regions.
