Maps have long been used to bring imaginary places to life, from Thomas More's Utopia to JRR Tolkien's Middle Earth. But the role of the imagination in mapping extends well beyond the depiction of fantasy realms. Some cartographers have conjured places that were only rumored to exist but that they hoped could one day be charted. Others have drawn on their creative faculties to map sites that were only hazily known.

The decree of the Head of State and Prime Minister granting full voting rights to all Polish citizens "without regard to sex/gender" issued in November 1918, was a milestone in the development of civic equality. It was also a special moment for women's emancipation movements, being at the same time the high point of their political efforts and the beginning of their socio-political participation as citizens with full rights of the newly recreated Polish state.
This volume examines the roles and contributions of civil society and social movements in terms of women and youth empowerment, freedom of expression, conflict resolution, the promotion of human rights and community peace-building. For this scope, it investigates the impact of civil society and social movements organizations on politics, power and their impact on social and political life. The book also analyses the extent to which the new information technologies are used by civil society and social movements for mobilizing as well as framing their political and social demands.
