Letter from the Editor

This issue of the International Journal of Not-for-Profit Law features a comprehensive overview of a particularly timely topic, restrictions on foreign funding of NGOs. The author, Rebecca Vernon, is a third-year student at Cornell Law School and a former ICNL intern. Next, Ibrahim Saleh considers challenges that confront civil society in the Middle East and North Africa. Saleh is a Fulbright Scholar and Senior Media Expert in the Media Sustainability Index, the Middle East and North Africa. Two former Fellows at ICNL assess prospects for reform in NGO law in Kenya: Rahma Adan Jillo, an attorney with the NGOs Coordination Board of Kenya, and Faith Kisinga, Consultant for the Government-CSO Collaboration Program - PACT International. Marek Rymsza, Editor-in-Chief of The Third Sector quarterly, summarizes state policy toward the Polish civic sector. Finally, James Austin and Ezequiel Reficco discuss corporate social entrepreneurship. Austin is Eliot I. Snider and Family Professor of Business Administration, Emeritus, at Harvard Business School; Reficco is currently a Professor in the Strategy Area at the University of Los Andes School of Management, Bogotá, Colombia.

We gratefully acknowledge USAID, which funded the Kenya studies; Trzeci Sektor quarterly, Warsaw, and Ökologisches Wirtschaften, Munich, for allowing us to reprint material; and, as always, our authors for their incisive and informative articles.
