This think piece examines why - despite all the citizen mobilisation around tackling the convergent crises of our time - humanity is still failing to deliver solutions commensurate with the urgency and scale of the global challenges we face, such as the implosion of the global financial system; escalating poverty; the threats of terrorism, trafficking and organised crime; and escalating concerns over energy security and climate change. Setting the role of UK civil society organisations in a global context, this paper aims to determine the responsibilities of UK civil society in supporting social movements in other countries with weaker democratic traditions and fewer resources at their disposal.
