This book contributes to the civil society and development
debate by adapting a convergent analytic framework that
synthesizes neo-institutional and social identity
perspectives, to interrogate the competing interests among
civil society organizations (CSOs). Within the scope of this
objective, It analyses three sub-themes; the internal
governance structures of Disabled People’s Organizations
(DPOs); the dynamics of competition for resources; and the
relationship between civil and political society; and how
these factors impact on the internal cohesion of the
disability movement. The central argument is that the
necessity to respond to the institutional pressures from the
organizational field interacts with identity based interest
articulation of actors, to shape the degree of internal
cohesion among CSOs.
