Summary

Democratic Governance and Social Entrepreneurshipaddresses the intersection between emerging approaches to development: microfinance, microenterprise, and social entrepreneurship. It examines the ability of societies to generate their own public goods when the state is incapable of doing so. These approaches to development have impacts on development and civil society building, but do not necessarily amount to political empowerment per se; they may add to the growth of civil society, but not in the ways that advocates of democratization policies had predicted. This raises important questions for civic participation in the state when the state is no longer viewed as the locus or main provider of public goods and democratic governance. Democratic Governance and Social Entrepreneurshipwill be of interest to students and scholars of development politics, political economy and governance.
