Civil society

CIVIL SOCIETY: What level and sources of funding for civil society stakeholders?
When the economic growth is robust, corporations, governments and individuals are more willing and able to give charities, provide official development assistance and invest in civil society activities. Weak economic growth creates the opposite dynamic.
“Governments should view civil society not as a threat but as an asset. A genuine democracy is like a three-legged stool. One leg is responsive, accountable government; the second leg a dynamic job-creating private sector; and the third leg is a robust and vibrant civil society.” by Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State (Strategic Dialogue with Civil Society 2012 Summit, Washington DC: US Department of State)
