Confrontational, Complementary, Co-Operative Or Co-Opted? Social Justice Organisations Working With The State
This report was commissioned by the RAITH foundation to review various engagements between social justice organisations (SJOs) and state bodies with a view to determining under what conditions they have been successful in pursuing and deepening social justice and democratic outcomes. The report offers an analysis of the state which avoids viewing it as a monolithic and coherent entity. Instead we offer a view of the state which attempts to make the institutional life of the state visible with all of its contradictions and internal contestations.
