TSI Working Paper no. 2 | Lester M. Salamon and S. Wojciech Sokolowski.
Produced as part of the Third Sector Impact Project (TSI), this working paper presents a consensus definition of the third sector that builds upon a bottom-up investigation of European experiences with various third sector concepts and a vigorous set of discussions among project partners and outside stakeholders. The resulting conceptualization takes account of a number of critical European particularities and covers both institutional and individual manifestations of the third sector concept while still providing a basis for systematic comparisons among European countries and between them and countries in different regions. This is the second paper in the TSI Working Papers series, which can be found here.
