Getting Organized In Vietnam: Moving In And Around The Socialist State
by Kerkvliet, Ben; Russell Heng; David Koh (Eds.)
About This Book
This book presents original case studies of the gamut of organizations in Vietnam today and analyses their relationships with umbrella state organizations which are themselves evolving. It also constitutes an enquiry into the term civil society itself. The contributors examine current thinking about the nature of the state in Vietnam in particular. Included here are the first attempts to provide a framework for assessing and categorizing the bewildering array of small organizations in Vietnam: which ones are weakly connected to the state, which ones are independent of the state but perhaps dependent on outside funding agencies.
Based on work done at the ANU/ISEAS Vietnam Update 2001 symposium held in Singapore.
