NGOs and Democracy

Foreign Policy magazine has reprinted several of its better articles exploring the topic.

In my experience each electoral contest produces at least one surprise. For example, an issue that takes on unexpected prominence. A leader emerges who speaks for a new group of people or concern. These mutations if you will can determine the election outcome.

NGOs by being the closest observers on the ground can spot them and wield these new developments’ emotional appeal to their advantage in the ongoing effort to bolster democracy’s sway and its wholeness.

The topic deserves further examination. Thanks FP for your contribution.
