Chapter Summary

Drawn from case studies of Bolivia and Egypt, the conclusions in this chapter focus on not only the Funds as an example of empowered institutions (EPIs) but also on the three-sphere model described at the beginning of this book namely, state, civil society, and economy. This book has argued that there are structural issues limiting the possibility of achieving development synergy and strengthening civil society and creating empowered participation, even through institutions that are created for these purposes. Within this overview of the social fund (SF) case studies presented in this book, four sets of conclusions warrant detailed discussion, linking theoretical concepts to their institutional manifestation. The chapter looks at the relationship between SFs and neoliberalism, the state, and civil society, and finally the power network supporting SFs.

Keywords: Bolivian fund; civil society; Egyptian fund; empowered institutions(EPIs); funding network; neoliberalism; social funds (SFs); state institutions
