A Teaching Topic in Democratic Institutions and Policy Process
Conceptual and Theoretical Foundations of Third Sector Governance and ManagementThis topic introduces students to the conceptual and theoretical foundations upon which the analysis of third sector governance and management is built. This topic teaches students why the “third sector” exists, and discusses its relationship with the state. Students are also introduced to the long-standing debate over whether a “bigger” government tends to crowd out third sector activity. Finally this topic provides comparative analysis, analyzing some of the similarities and differences that exist between the role of the third sector in a range of economically developed countries.
