Civil Society, Non-Governmental Organisation and Non-Profit Studies

The programme provides you with an advanced understanding of social science debates, theories and concepts relevant to organised civil society, including the 'third sector' of NGOs, social movements and other formations between market and state, and refers to the institutions and practices of philanthropy, altruism and reciprocity. It imparts country-specific as well as cross-national and transnational empirical and theoretical knowledge of the historical and contemporary challenges faced by these organisations. It also analyses how they relate to ongoing social, political and economic transformations. In particular, your capacity to think sympathetically, but critically, about your contributions to policy through welfare systems and in other public policy arenas is developed.
