CCSS Working Paper #13 | Helmut K. Anheier, Eckhard Priller, and Annette Zimmer.
Two competing views about the East German nonprofit sector have been put forward by policy analysts. One view sees the East German nonprofit sector as an expression of civil society rooted in an emerging democratic culture and based on a broadening base of social participation. According to the other view, the East German nonprofit sector is largely an extension of West German organizations that are not embedded in local society. Subsidiarity has created tendencies toward a bipartite nonprofit sector in Germany, with each part differing in size, scope, and financial structure.
