About the Book
Edited by Prof. Lino Briguglio, Dr. Michael Briguglio, Sheila Bunwaree and Claire Slatter, “Handbook of Civil Society and Social Movements in Small States” depicts the way civil society encompasses social movements, which are considered to be loosely organized collective campaigns in pursuit of social goals. It deals with particular characteristics of small states, including limited ability to reap the benefits of economies of scale, high degree of exposure to forces outside their control, and the proximity of politicians to the voters, often leading to clientelistic relationships and patronage networks.
