This article examines civil society support for the political system in times of crisis in Bolivia in 2004. It finds that membership in civil society organizations leads to higher levels of diffuse support and even among those who have recently participated in protest. Civil society, however, is not associated with higher support for government during the crisis. Despite extremely high levels of mobilization, extreme dissatisfaction with government, and evidence that membership in associations actively facilitates political protest, civil society continues to be positively associated with support for the political system
