Example text

The term non-governmental organization (NGOs) refers to various interest groups, lobby groups and pressure groups that try to influence politics and political decisions. There is no requirement that they be democratically organized. The voluntary sector and independent sector are aggregate terms that are often reserved for NGOs, NPOs and foundations in the US and/or 20 A Democratic Architecture for the Welfare State UK.

Once again he called attention to the importance of the Swedish consumer cooperatives, now in terms of promoting international development aid to the third world. However, the consumer cooperatives became more ‘business-like’ in many respects in the 1990s and their economic, political and social role has changed greatly in the new millennium. Given their historical importance, it therefore seems logical to begin our inquiry into the third sector and redemocratization of the welfare state by considering what could be the potential contribution of the cooperatives today in promoting the development and renewal of democracy and of the welfare state in Sweden?

It is comprised of voluntary organizations, ideal associations, sports clubs, various societies, cooperatives, mutual societies, social enterprises, popular movements, and so forth.
