The another world is possible movement- a continuing series of anti-globalization protests- and conflicting views on core labor standards, corporate codes of conduct, and theWTO have placed civil society organizations at the center of public debates on global governance.While NGOs and unions will naturally pursue diverse strategies and tactics, neither sector can afford to go it alone. The essays collected in this volume elucidate some of the underlying tensions between trade unions and NGOs and illustrate the scope for constructive and respectful dialogue -- and potential partnership -- between them.
