  • Description

In recent years, the third sector has grown increasingly important in Europe. This trend not only suggests greater political interest in the third sector, but also indicates that the EU is taking a more active role in policy-making in this field. With the help of five theses and the background of recent research findings in the field, this document explores what lies behind this shift, what developments are likely to take place in the coming years, and how these will affect the third sector.
