The nonprofit sector is a rapidly growing area of research, social policy and social action. This dynamic field is at the center of such contemporary public policy debates as the future of federal social policy, the changing role of religion in public life, national service, and the privatization of public services. Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly (NVSQ) provides cutting-edge research, discussion, and analysis of the field and leads its readers to understanding the impact the nonprofit sector has on society.
