Comparative Nonprofit Sector Working Paper #29 | Rodrigo Villar.
Describes a nonprofit sector in which nonprofit, or civil society, organizations have begun to emerge autonomously, independent of the government, political parties, or the Catholic Church. This civil society renewal is facilitated by the 1991 Constitution providing for participatory spaces for private, nonprofit actors, but has been challenged by continuing political violence.
