They are part of grassroots action via social movements and the construction of "alternative political cultures" as well. This book thus will have a wide appeal to scholars and students interested in good governance, corruption, social movements and democratic change, as well as Asian studies."--Jacket."@en ;

PollWatch is then compared with similar Non-Governmental Organizations in the Philippines such as NAMFREL, and with election practices in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore." ;
