Three weeks after China's earthquake, the country is still feeling political aftershocks. There has been a groundswell of public support for the government following a very visible relief and recovery operation. The scale of the devastation has led to public philanthropy, with non-governmental organizations playing an active role. Now, some analysts even predict that the earthquake could be a turning point for civil society in China.
