The nonprofit sector in France
This is the first book to reveal the extent to which nonprofit organizations, despite their invisibility in official statistics, have come to permeate French society. From mutual societies to the high profile work of Medecins sans Frontieres, nonprofit organizations have become one of the clearest expressions of social and cultural change in France. Edith Archambault argues that non-profit organizations have a unique ability to marry private initiative with public concerns. She begins by discussing their history since the Revolution and their legal status and then offers a path-breaking empirical analysis of the scope, structure and financing of the nonprofit sector in France. She discusses recent trends on the major subsectors of culture, education, and health, and in government policy toward the sector. A final section argues that the French state is losing its monopoly on public good.
