Within international research, Sweden has often been described as a country with a very small non-profit or voluntary sector. In this text, such a standpoint is subject to questioning. Based on a set of first-hand empirical data, this volume provides an account of the sector's development and current position in Sweden. It defines the Swedish non-profit sector and outlines its history and legal framework, as well as the relations betwen the non-profit sector and the state. The book concludes with a discussion of policy issues, including the question of the future role of non-profit organizations in society.
