Over the past decade, international human rights organizations and think tanks have expressed a growing concern that the space of civil society organizations around the world is under pressure. This book examines the pressures experienced by NGOs in four partial democracies: Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia and the Philippines. Based on fieldwork, it analyzes the complex processes of shrinking political space and the ways NGOs and grassroots organizations try to defend and reclaim their space.
