Comparative Nonprofit Sector Working Paper #3 | Lester M. Salamon and Helmut K. Anheier.
Redefines the nonprofit sector by giving it a structural/operational definition that breaks up organizations in the nonprofit sector into five structural/operational features. Explains the need for such a classification system and explains why existing systems are lacking in their definition of the sector. Also provides an alternative to the Proposed International Classification of Nonprofit Organizations and tests a cross-national application of the alternative.
