Abstract

The growing role and importance of civil society groups demands an understanding of their philosophical and intellectual underpinnings and who the people are that support their agendas. This project provides a multifaceted picture of the supporters of three critical social causes: environmental sustainability, animal welfare and economic globalisation. Understanding who these people are and what motivates them will give us a better understanding of many of the drivers of our own economic and social future, thereby helping to strengthen Australia's social and economic fabric.
