Recent faculty book publication: Dr. Christopher Pallas "Transnational Civil Society and the World Bank"


KENNESAW, Ga. (Mar 25, 2014) — Dr. Pallas is pleased to announce his new book "Transnational Civil Society and the World Bank: Investigating Civil Society's Potential to Democratize Global Governance" is now available.

Short Description: Academics and practitioners alike cite transnational civil society as a key means of remediating the democratic deficit in global governance.  Yet a clear gap has begun to emerge between normative hopes and empirical reality. Using new data from civil society engagements with the World Bank, this book examines how transnational civil society organizations (TCSOs) develop their advocacy agendas and achieve policy change, and assesses the impacts of their activities on democractic representation.
