505 0  Chapter 1. Introduction -- Chapter 2. Analysing Civil 
       Society in Weak States -- Chapter 3. State Weakness and 
       Civil Society in Bangladesh -- Chapter 4. State Weakness 
       and Civil Society in the Philippines -- Chapter 5. Mirror 
       Images of Weak States: Civil Societies in Bangladesh and 
       the Philippines -- Chapter 6. Conclusion and Debate 
520    This book investigates theoretically and empirically 
       whether and (if so) how state weakness influences the way 
       in which national civil societies constitute themselves, 
       using Bangladesh and the Philippines as case studies. A 
       vibrant civil society is usually perceived as an important
       ingredient of democracy, but does this hold for civil 
       society in weak states as well? What does civil society 
       look like in contexts of state weakness? How much and what
       kind of political influence does it have in such settings?
       And are its actors really capable and willing to 
       contribute to democracy in states where independent and 
       legal bureaucratic institutions are weak? Addressing each 
       of these questions, the author points the way to some hard
       re-thinking about the basis for and approach to 
       development assistance to and via local civil society, 
       with crucial repercussions for the ways in which 
       international development assistance is designed and 
       funded
