Message What is becoming evident these days is that neither the government nor the private sector alone can have all the resources needed to help people facing contingencies. It is therefore extremely important for any country to implement well-thought mechanisms of public-private social welfare mix in order to have a comprehensive system of social welfare that works properly. My main field of study is private and public social welfare, including theoretical analysis of civil society and the third sector, quantitative/qualitative research and analysis of social enterprises/voluntary organizations, and the co-production of public and social services between nonprofit and government sectors at local level. I am also researching and writing in the areas of citizens' participation in local government decision-making processes and asset-based community development approaches for more sustainable development.
