Our research

Perspectives on participation

How to increase participation and include underrepresented groups in the civil society? We research on participation among children and young people, and other underrepresented groups in organisational life.

Changes in the voluntary sector

What are the key influencing and change factors affecting the voluntary sector and how do organisations deal with the changes? We examine factors that influence and change the voluntary sector.

Framework terms

The voluntary sector has seen an increase in funding. We will look at the framework conditions and funding basis for voluntary organisations in various fields of varying economic size and geographical affiliation.

The social effects of volunteering

How do voluntary organisations contribute to solving important societal challenges? We have previously researched this topic and will in this round strengthen and further develop knowledge and research in the field.
