Working With Civil Society in Foreign Aid: Possibilities for South-South Cooperation?

25 Sep 2013

The E-book “Working With Civil Society in Foreign Aid – Possibilities for South-South Cooperation?” reviews different roles, experiences, and lessons learned from working with civil society in development cooperation. It compares and analyses common themes and good practices from numerous aid-providing countries. It also puts forth potential issues and questions for consideration regarding future engagement with civil society under the framework of South-South cooperation. 


The book is structured into two sections: the first collates lessons learned from DAC donors and South–South aid-providers, including their experiences in working with CSOs as part of their foreign aid strategy. The second part is a collection of detailed case studies that offers country-specific, in-depth knowledge on engaging with CSOs. Countries featured in the case studies include: Australia, Brazil, Sweden, Turkey, the United States, and other South–South aid-providers. Also featured is a case study on working with international NGOs. The book concludes with an extensive annotated bibliography on the different roles of civil society.
