Special Issue on 'The Third Sector and the Global Economic Recession'


Special issue call for papers from International Journal of Sociology and Social Policy

Joint Guest Editors

Sheying Chen (Pace University, USA) and Jason L. Powell (University of Chester, UK)

We are seeking papers for a special edition of the International Journal of Sociology and Social Policy on "The Third Sector and the Global Economic Recession". We are looking for papers that address the 'third sector'  including broadly any non-state and non-market organisations - such as non-governmental organisations, voluntary organisations, and community groups - and the problems they have in comparative perspective.

The special edition asks: what are the limits to the roles of third sector organisations with limited resources? Are third sector issues affected by country, institutions, policy, period, areas of activity and global economic recession? The special edition wishes to draw on examples from a range of areas of activity (such as education, welfare, employment, health and social care), and areas of activity with particular groups (such as migrants and refugees, children and older people), as well as a range of countries (including the Africas, the Americas, EU and Asia).
