Highly successful, widely trusted and globally applauded, international civil society organisations (ICSOs) such as Oxfam, Greenpeace and Amnesty International are major players on the global stage.... More > However, fundamental change in the outside world threatens their role and future existence: Shrinking space for civic participation hinders their work in many countries; climate change, persistent poverty and growing inequality make it harder for them to achieve their missions; and the rise of the internet disrupts their business models.

The Arab Spring began in Tunisia. The tragic self-immolation of Mohammed Bouazizi in December 2010 struck a chord of discontent and frustration that ultimately propelled Tunisian President Zine El... More > Abidine Ben Ali to step down barely a month later. The reverberations of this unprecedented series of events were felt throughout the region, and protestors took to the streets in Bahrain, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Syria, and Yemen. A year later, Tunisia’s remarkable transition continues to influence the region. Tunisia has achieved in 1 year what none of the other Arab Spring states have been able to accomplish. Some have suggested that Tunisia’s transition might even be a model for the Arab Spring countries. The Tunisian military’s refusal to ire on the demonstrators and its decision to eschew an overtly political role in the transition have left the task of creating a new political order in Tunisia to the civilian bureaucracy, nascent political parties, and civil society groups.< Less

Paperback: $20.98
Prints in 3-5 business days
The state is no longer the sole player in public action: it is now obliged to interact with civil society, the private sector and populations. This transition from “government” (a state... More > monopoly) to “public governance” (public action with a plurality of actors) implies a certain repositioning. It is in the new relationship between the state and societies that the exercise of political power is called upon to find coherence and to restructure the legitimacy of the state. This diagnosis was the starting point for the reflections contained in this work. From the standpoint of legitimacy, the authors of this book have studied a series of experiences and practices, both in various countries around the world and within different international organisations. They offer a series of descriptive contributions designed to facilitate comprehension and analysis of the processes seeking to legitimise political power, according to a variety of contexts and the diversity of conceptions of power.< Less
