Intermediary organizations and field

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientific


The same organization can be called a voluntary association, a nonprofit, an interest or pressure group or an intermediary organization, dependent upon one’s focus: does one want to illuminate the fact that the organization is set up voluntarily by citizens, that it has economic characteristics comparable with for-profits, that it represents interests and tries to influence government, or that it has connecting and mediating functions? As an intermediary organization it mediates between individuals and organizations, and links different layers and spheres of society.
