Northern governments and NGOs are increasingly convinced that civil society will enable people in developing countries to escape the poverty trap. A growing amount of resources are following. Yet how is this kind of assistance different from other modes of intervention? This volume presents in-depth case studies of projects in Peru, Kenya, Hungary and Sri Lanka and it gives detailed policy recommendations intended to improve the effectiveness and appropriateness of future projects.
