Description - Third Sector Policy at the Crossroads by Helmut K. Anheier

The nonprofit sector occupies an ever more central role in economic and social policies, from the redesign of welfare system in the U.S. or UK, and development projects in Africa or Asia to "creating civil society" and fostering democracy in Central and Eastern Europe. At the same time, non-profit organizations face increased public scrutiny, and calls for more "efficiency" greater "accountability." The sector is confronted with often conflicting, demands of new public management, tight budgeting, and greater competition. As a result, many nonprofit organizations are feeling more insecure about their role, and are searching for a clearer "identity," trying to understand the specific competencies that set them apart from both government and business firm. In essence, the nonprofit sector is at a crucial crossroad in its development. Against this background, the book explore key policy issues: Is the nonprofit sector in crisis? What are common themes and pattern in current policy debates concerning the future of the nonprofit sector? What policy models are being discussed, and what are their implications? How can nonprofit organisations negotiate a course between commercialization and tighter government regulation?
