CHAPTER 19

GLOBAL CIVIL SOCIETY
RALLYING FOR REAL CHANGE

Kumi Naidoo
Executive Director, Greenpeace International



The world has many problems, but civil society is rising to deal with them. While most of these civil society organizations are local and national, a growing minority are international and making waves.

Global civil society has its own set of problems. Some of these issues are similar to those it champions against in governments and businesses: accountability, the rich/poor divide, and self-interest.

However, the reformers understand the need for reform and are responding to the challenges. Three pragmatic solutions can help drive global civil society toward its ideal: multilateral institutions that work, multi-stakeholder campaigns that foster solidarity, and capacity building for nongovernment organizations.
