Netherlands LEAD 579I

Comparative Nonprofit Sector

This course will allow students to explore a comparative perspective of the sector and its relations to government. Specifically, this course will examine the role of the nonprofit sector in different political and economic contexts with a comparative focus on the European and American contexts. The following questions will guide the discourse: (1) What roles do nonprofits play in different political and economic contexts? (2) What is the relationship between government and nonprofits in different political, economic, and social regimes? (3) How does this understanding translate to more effective leadership and management practices? The International Society of Third Sector Research (ISTR) conference in Amsterdam, Netherlands is a unique opportunity for students to explore these questions from the leading researchers, educators, and practitioners from around the world.
