The impact of the third sector on socio-economic development in Europe (TSI) – RTD

Principal investigator(s) at PSSRU: Nadia Brookes (PSSRU at Kent)
Team: Nadia Brookes

Start year: 2014
End year: 2017

The third sector, consisting of civil society associations and foundations, volunteers, and other citizen organisations and activities, offers unique renewable and sustainable resources for social and economic problem-solving, democracy, and civic engagement in Europe. In times of social and economic distress and enormous pressures on governmental budgets this sector is even more important than usual – not as an alternative to government but as a fully-fledged partner in the effort to promote economic development, active citizenship and social cohesion in Europe.
