Leadership and Governance
Uma Ramaswamy, Gagan Sethi, Haritha Sarma and Eswara Prasad
The trigger for the present paper comes from the deliberations of the three-day National Colloquium organized by HIDF (Bangalore) and EDI (Ahmedabad) on ‘Leadership and Governance in Civil Society’ in Ahmedabad from 22 to 24 July 2014. The Colloquium brought together notable leaders from civil society, select faculty from management institutes and, above all, the vibrant student community of EDI. The deliberations of the colloquium placed the engagements of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in a critical perspective for reflections and forward-looking paths. To place the insights of the colloquium in ongoing debates in civil society, we have to draw salient trends from secondary sources to enrich the document in its articulation.
