Re-Imagining Community and Civil Society in Latin America and the Caribbean


Roberta Rice
Yovanovich, Gordana


Latin American and Caribbean communities and civil societies are undergoing a rapid process of transformation. Instead of pervasive social atomization, political apathy, and hollowed-out democracies, which have become the norm in some parts of the world, this region is witnessing an emerging collaboration between community, civil society, and government that is revitalizing democracy. This book argues that a key explanation lies in the powerful and positive relationship between community and civil society that exists in the region. This is a truly multidisciplinary book, bridging established notions of civil society and community through an authentically interdisciplinary approach to the topic.
