Abstract: Since 2005 Hivos and ISS have been working together in a Civil Society Building Knowledge Programme (CSB KP). At the core of this collaboration is the interaction between practitioners and researchers to facilitate innovative research, improve policies and programmes and strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations. Hivos and ISS jointly organised a Network Seminar for the fourth time on 27 November and 9 December 2008. The case studies presented explored the diversity of roles and strategies employed by civil society organizations based on the recent field research of four ISS MA students supported by the Knowledge Programme in 2008. The aim of these seminars was to better understand the power of civil society to influence the state around issues such as HIV/AIDS, women’s rights, reproductive rights, and intellectual property rights.
