Mexican Solidarity

During the nearly 20 years of its existence, the Centro Mexicano para la Filantropía, A.C. (Cemefi, acronym in Spanish for the Mexican Center for Philanthropy) has promoted a varied agenda of research about civil society in Mexico. Cemefi has produced and published information on the characteristics of the social organizations that make up the Mexican nonprofit sector, as well as infor- tion about the type of legal, fiscal, and economic factors that promote or hinder organized citizen participation based on the principles of solidarity, social resp- sibility, and philanthropy. Once again, with the aim of bringing together information regarding the imp- tance of practices of solidarity in the country, Cemefi has decided to contribute to understanding, making known, and ultimately promoting volunteer action and acts of solidarity undertaken by citizens in this country. The end result of this effort is portrayed in this book, Mexican Solidarity: Citizen Participation and Volunteerism, edited and coordinated by Doctor Jacqueline Butcher. It is the product of a joint effort on the part of different people and insti- tions with a common goal: finding out about the characteristics of volunteerism and, in general, citizen participation in acts of solidarity in Mexico. Jacqueline Butcher García-Colín is President of the Board of Directors of the Mexican Center for Philanthropy (Centro Mexicano para la Filantropía, or CEMEFI) from 2006 to 2010, and President of the International Society for Third Sector Research (ISTR) from 2007 to 2008. Ms. Butcher has a B.Sc. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and also Master's and Doctoral degrees in Human Development from the Universidad Iberoamericana (Mexico City). Her research is concerned with volunteering and citizen participation, and she has been widely published. She belongs to the Editorial Board of Prometeo and Voluntas and is a member of the Technical Expert Group for the Manual on the Measurement of Volunteer Work assembled by ILO and the Johns Hopkins University Center for Civil Society Studies. In Mexico, is currently on the Board of the National Health Foundation (FUNSALUD) and is Member of the Citizens' Advisory Council of the National System for Integral Family Development (Sistema Nacional para el Desarrollo Integral de la Familia, or SNDIF)
