Course at the University of Copenhagen on voluntarism and the Welfare State: Consequences of the developments in the third sector and the civil society (in Danish)

In August the CISTAS project with Lars Bo Kaspersen and Christiane Mossin held a summer course investigating and discussing the third sector and the dilemmas and issues in relation to the civil society. How do we separate the state, the market and the civil society? Are voluntary organisations and associations able to take on more welfare services in Denmark? What kind of society can grow out of a stronger volunteer culture?
