Liberty, Civil Society, and Community: West and East
This conference provided a basis for discussing the degree to which civil society is the product of cultural and historical circumstances and/or a common human nature. The conference attempted to explore these issues by comparing phenomena of private voluntary associations and philanthropic organizations in the traditions of both West and East, drawing upon a combination of significant primary and secondary historical sources.
