Civil Society and NGOs in Europe and Russia: Responding to New Challenges and Opportunities

International Conference, St. Petersburg State University, November 12-14, 2010

Civil Society and NGOs in Europe and Russia: Responding to New Challenges and Opportunities

Organized by the Center for German and European Studies, St. Petersburg State University, in cooperation with the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation and with the Social Forum to be organized by the Center for NGOs Development (CRNO) on November 12-13, 2010

The conference reflected the new challenges NGOs are facing in the contemporary world both in Russia and European countries, the most significant and influential of which are produced by globalization and the decline of welfare states. Although both these processes present challenges to civil societies and citizens, they also provide new structure of opportunities, to increase self-help activities, self-organization and NGO and civil society development.
