Call for Papers: Special Issue on Civil Society Organizations and Democracy

Dear Colleagues,
with apologies for double-postings, we are pleased to announce that we are planning a special issue on Nonprofits and Democratization for the Journal Public Administration and Development (PAD). The focus is on the contributions that service providers/development NGOs can make to democratization efforts in the era of closing civic spaces.
PAD (Impact Factor: 1.55) is a well-established journal serving both the public administration and international development fields and is also picked up by NGO scholars. The journal's scope includes low and middle-income countries (as per the World Bank's definition), although comparisons to high-income countries or high-income country trends affecting low and middle-income countries (eg, development aid, democratization strategies) are also covered.
The call for papers is on the journal's website:
Paper proposals/abstracts are due by February 26, 2021.
Very best,
Alisa Moldavanova, Tamaki Onishi, and Stefan Toepler
Starts:  Nov 25, 2020 9:00 AM (ET)
Ends:  Feb 26, 2021 5:00 PM (ET)
