Abstract:Are Arab NGOs contributing to the democratization process? Do they create trial arenas for citizen participation and/or alternative forums to promote and define 'common welfare'? These are the central questions addressed in this collective volume, which emerged from the conference 'NGOs and governance in the Arab countries', organized in Cairo in 2000. Apart from the introductory chapter by Sarah Ben Néfissa, the book is divided into two parts: 1. Globalization and governance: situating Arab NGOs, and 2. NGOs of the Arab world: between the democracy question and the social question. The first part has contributions by Carlos Milani, Pierre-Jean Roca, Muhammad Al-Sayyid Sa?id and Guilain Denoeux. The second part contains case studies on Egypt, Palestine, Libanon, Yemen and Somalia. Titles of the studies on Egypt and Somalia: From inertia to movement: a study of the conflict over the NGO law in Egypt (Viviane Fouad, Nadia Ref?at & Samir Murcos); Hegemony and counter-hegemony in Egypt: advocacy NGOs, civil society, and the State (Nicola Pratt); Islamic NGOs and the development of democracy in Egypt (Abd al-Ghaffar Shukr); NGOs and the reform of the Egyptian health system: realistic prospects for governance or pipe dream (Sylvia Chiffoleau); NGOs in a country without a government: Islamic movements and aspirations to replace the State in war-torn Somalia (Marc-Antoine Pérouse de Montclos.
