SAMKUL-Samfunnsutviklingens kulturell

APPROPRIATING THE COMMONS: ARTICULATING THE CULTURAL TRANSFORMATION OF WELFARE AND CHARITY

De siste årene har vi i Norge sett økende sosial ulikhet, og samtidig en endring i hvordan frivillige organisasjoner oppstår, utvikler seg og gjør sin innsats vis-a-vis de offentlige velferdstjenestene. Utgangspunktet for ACTWEL er en hypotese om at det som del av disse prosessene skjer en vridni...
