Commentary: A Gap between Amibition and Effectiveness
Hans Peter Schmitz and Tosca Bruno-van Vijfeijken were invited recently by the Journal of Civil Society to comment on a paper "Crises in Civil Society" by John Clark, well-known former civil society practitioner who is currently pursuing free-lance writing and consulting assignments. John worked as the first Policy and Research Director at Oxfam Great Britain in the 80ies and later spearheaded the opening up of the World Bank towards civil society organizations in the 90s. It was during this time that John and Tosca were colleagues in the Social Development Department of the Bank. John has since retired from the World Bank. Other commentators in this issue of the Journal are Jan Aart Scholte, John Clark, Ann Florini, Margaret E. Keck & Marisa von Bulow, and Mark Juergensmeyer.
