Full text not available from this repository.


This unique collection of comparative studies on the politics of non-governmental public action at the global level explores themes such as child rights, access to medicine, global security and environmentalism. The contributors investigate how non-governmental public actors engage in global policy processes and how this in turn affects their activities and their relations with each other. They discuss the tensions of organising globally, revolving around different political agendas in the `North' and `South', different ideological starting-points and differential access to resources and opportunities. Whilst non-governmental public action at the global level can make a difference to issues and policies both globally and domestically, acting globally also brings with it tensions, contradictions and complex power relations that shape how non-governmental public action unfolds. These issues are explored through a variety of transnational themes such as child rights, access to medicine and intellectual property rights, global security, environmentalism.
