- International Conference ""The Role of Third Sector Organisations in Changing Welfare Systems in Central and Eastern European Countries"
- Ljubljana, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia
- Third sector organisations in Central and Eastern European Countries reveal similar characteristics that simultaneously distinguish them from third sector organisations in other societies. These inward similarities and outward differences can be explained in the context of the state-socialist type of welfare system that prevailed in these societies for almost half a century. There has been a ??boom?? in the development of third sector organisations after the system change, however, the third sector in these countries is still heavily ambiguous. Moreover, despite the general similarities there are striking differences in the level of development and characteristics of third sector organisations that emerged in a relatively short period in the mentioned societies. Especially in terms of development of service providing organisations and how these organisations are becoming integrated in the changing welfare systems.[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
