An exhaustive study of changing nonprofit policy issues in response to the economic recession.
Government-Nonprofit Relations in Times of Recession brings together contributions by international scholars to examine how the relationships between governments and nonprofit organizations have shifted as a result of the global recession. Each chapter provides a detailed analysis of the impact of the recession on government operations and on the nonprofit sector. It is essential reading for academics and practitioners interested in the current policy agendas with regard to the nonprofit sector.
This book is the sixth volume to emerge from the Public Policy and Third Sector Initiative in the School of Policy Studies at Queen's University, and is based on the Tenth Annual National Forum of the Initiative, which brought together public servants, experts, and practitioners to discuss the evolution of government-nonprofit relations.
