Civil Society and Democratization in India synopsis
To develop this conceptual framework of civil society, this book examines how NGOs contribute to democracy in India and what conditions facilitate or discourage its contribution. It assesses three different types of policy within civil society - liberal pluralism, new Marxism, and commonality - that have had different implications for democracy.
Using the in-depth empirical analysis and comparative case studies of three development NGOs working among tribal communities in the social and historical context of South Rajasthan, the book shows that civil society is not necessarily a democratic force, but can have contradictory consequences for democracy. It discusses how the democratic influence of civil society is not the result of "social capital stock" in society but depends on the types of existing and growing ideologies and interests not only within civil societyinstitutions but also within the state.
The book presents new insights on NGOs, democracy, civil society, state, political society, tribal politics, Hindu nationalism, international development aid, and popular social movements in India. It enables readers to better understand the multifaceted nature of civil society and its relationship to the state and its implications for development and democratization.
