In the last decade, the significance of the third sector has literally grown all over the world, from the advanced countries of Western Europe, North America and Asia, to countries of the former Soviet bloc and developing countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The growth in the inexhaustible number of nonprofit organizations (NPOs), the boom in associating and voluntary activity belongs to the great social innovation at the end of the 20th and in the beginning of the 21th centuries. The main aim of the course is to provide a general overview on the changing role of the civil society and its organizations in the process of transition/transformation. The course analyses the basic trends of the government policies toward CSOs and the impact of CSOs on public policy making. The course deals with the special interpretations of the basic theories on CSOs and the special features of the accomplishment of the basic functions of CSOs.
