In this chapter the authors highlight the extraordinary diversity of events, perspectives and strategies across the globe demonstrated by the writers of these chapters and the organisations they describe. The authors summarise some of the issues and lessons raised in these various case studies, and, drawing on Fraser’s (2013) framework, they explore the multiple sites and forms of domination and the different forms of resistance these organisational actors have identified. The authors also highlight the respective challenges of working inside as well as attacking from outside those institutions. They specifically focus on the role of civil society organisations and return to the challenging question of whether CSOs are maintaining or challenging the status quo.

Keywords:   civil society organisations, domination, resistance, Fraser, Organisational actors
