Democracy and Civil Society in Asia by Fahimul Quadir
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This collection explores the possibilities for expanding and consolidating existing democratic spaces in Asia, under the pressure of market reforms. It provides new insights into the prospects for democratic consolidations in the region. The book explores the ways of going beyond the official and elitist discourses on constitutional democracy and economic development. It analyzes the complex challenges of deepening poverty and highlights the obstacles to the empowerment of marginalized communities, including women and ethno religious minorities. The authors of this volume suggest ways to engender development through grassroots democracy in the new millennium.
