Empowerment is an integral element of a democratic system. The maturity of a democracy is directly related to the level of empowerment its citizens and institutions experience. However, the use of the term `empowerment` in different contexts has rendered its precise conceptualisation very difficult. This book addresses this problem through a comparative analysis of three major organisational systems- business, government, and social development. The book presents a new conceptual framework for understanding the process of empowerment. It combines case studies prepared specially for this volume, with secondary data and the author`s first hand experience of working with development organisations. t also presents an index to assess the effectiveness of empowerment approaches in the three organisational systemss studied. The differential understanding of empowerment in various organisational contexts plays animportant role in addressing the development challenges in a given society. It helps to promote cross-sectoral learning, and contributes to a qualtive shift in empowering society as a whole.
