This chapter examines the history of civil society activism in India and its link to the international/global civil society. It describes the civil society movements in India including the emergence of new social movements, non-governmental organizations, and the ‘uncivil’ elements in the civil society since 1990. It explains that the new social movements and other civil society organizations in India operated in the same way as their counterparts in other countries because of their refusal to be co-opted by the Indian state.

Keywords:   civil society activism, India, global civil society, social movements, non-governmental organizations, uncivil elements, Indian state
