About this book

With contributions from experts on democracy promotion, this volume examines civil society development and external civil society promotion in post-socialist Europe. It focuses on countries with a failed or deficient process of democratic consolidation looking at unintended consequences of external democracy promotion on civil society development.

Reviews

This volume breaks new ground by delving into the 'black box' that connects civil society and democracy promotion. Its contributions combine innovative theorizing and rich empirical case studies that will reinvigorate ongoing debates about the democratic influences and effects of civil society.
