About this grant

This grant provides continued support to the International Society for Third-Sector Research, a global membership association with 870 members from 76 countries that encourages, supports, and provides academic legitimacy to the study of civil society. Founded in 1992 and based at Johns Hopkins University, the society’s major accomplishments include convening biennial international research conferences; publishing special reports, conference working papers, and a scholarly journal; and convening regional meetings of research networks in Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Asia and the Pacific. In 2015-2016, activities will include organizing doctoral student seminars in Sweden, China, and Indonesia; hosting regional meetings in Puerto Rico, Japan, and Ghana; building research capacity in severely underserved and underrepresented countries and regions including China, the Middle East, and Russia; fostering an international network of academic research center directors; continuing to publish a journal; and holding a biennial international conference in mid-2016 in Sweden.
