Too much civil society? Donor-driven NGOs in the Balkans

Sampson, Steven LU (2004) In Revisiting the Role of Civil Society in the Promotion of Human Rights p.197-220
Abstract
This articles discusses the professionalization of human rights NGOs in the Balkans and the consequences for the relation between civil society as social movements, versus Civil Society as a budget category. This latter tendency leads to the rise of the projectization of development, wehereby NGOs simply become project organizations. The result is restrictions on the development of NGOs as the voice of social movements.
