Chapter Summary

The state being the most important institution for coordinating the activities of society is necessary to ensure that society works harmoniously towards alleviating poverty. This means that the state and society are the most important agents of poverty alleviation if it is to be accomplished as soon as possible. This chapter focuses on state/society policy. It seeks to answer the question: what are the attitudes towards state/society policy as explicated by democratization, empowerment and patronage. The chapter begins with a brief analysis of the interaction between state and society. It, then, elaborates the policy within the interaction between state and society. Next, it presents the major findings of the attitudes on state/society policy in Kenya among Catholic university students in the Nairobi area. The chapter also discusses the social location of the empirical attitudes and concludes the chapter with a summary of the findings.
