In Search of the Third Sector


April 11, 2016

Lester Salamon Senior Research Professor

Interview on the FP7 funded SSH project "Third Sector Impact", a major, cross-national research project carried out by teams of researchers from Europe and around the world under the leadership of the Johns Hopkins Center for Civil Society Studies. Focusing on what is considered to be the core of the third sector concept, namely, nonprofit or voluntary organizations, the project formulated a consensus definition of the nonprofit sector that was sufficiently operationalized to be incorporated into official statistical systems. The research challenged the traditional image of the European "welfare state" by demonstrating that Europe has in fact developed a massive "welfare partnership", with a nonprofit sector in a number of European countries boasting a workforce that is second or third largest workforce of any of the 18 industries into which economists regularly divide economies. The findings were presented at a December 2015 conference held by the Luxembourg Presidency, resulting in a declaration signed by six Member States asking the European Union to further commit for strengthening the support to the social economy.
