International and national dynamics in Latin America are reconfiguring the relationships between the main development actors. These dynamics are shifting the ground for civil society organisations and impacting on their ability to fulfil their role in fighting poverty and inequality and promoting democratisation. CARE commissioned research in Bolivia, Brazil, Nicaragua and Peru in 2007 to explore how the international and national contexts are affecting the ability of civil society to influence public and aid policy (with particular reference to the policies and practices of the World Bank and IDB).
