Letter from the Editor

The International Journal of Not-for-Profit Law marks the beginning of a new American presidential administration with a symposium on Reformist Leaders and Civil Society. We asked civil society leaders from around the world to address four questions on the impact of reformist leaders plus one on the current economic crisis. We are delighted to present their thought-provoking responses: Ingrid Srinath, Secretary General of CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation; Francis N. Pangilinan, a Senator of the Republic of the Philippines; Liz Atkins, Director of Public Policy for the National Council for Voluntary Organisations in London; Boris Strečanský, Executive Director of the Center for Philanthropy in Slovakia; David Robinson, Director of the New Zealand Social and Civic Policy Institute; Arthur Larok, Director of Programmes, Uganda National NGO Forum; and Dragan Golubovic, Senior Legal Advisor of the European Center for Not-for-Profit Law in Budapest.

We also feature an overview of the legal framework for not-for-profit organizations in Central and Eastern Europe, by Douglas Rutzen, President of the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law; David Moore, Program Director for the European Center for Not-for-Profit Law; and Michael Durham, a former ICNL intern who is now an associate at Caplin and Drysdale. Benedict C. Iheme, a lawyer and development consultant from Nigeria, outlines the laws and regulations under which Namibian civic organizations operate. And the Foundation Center, in cooperation with the Council on Foundations, provides a snapshot of today’s international grantmaking.

As always, we gratefully acknowledge our authors for their incisive and informative articles.
