We welcome presentations from researchers, academics, doctoral students and practitioners in voluntary organisations (including infrastructure bodies and foundations) who are doing research in areas relevant to the voluntary sector or civil society in the UK.  For example, we will be pleased to consider papers, from a theoretical, methodological, practice or policy perspective on areas such as participation, volunteering, philanthropy and giving, organisational issues, public policy, funding cuts, co-production or social enterprise. Papers which consider issues around are particularly welcome.

Your abstract should contain a question, problem or dilemma arising from practice, theory or earlier research findings.  Papers are usually based on completed or on-going research (qualitative or quantitative) or a review of the evidence or literature in an area of interest to voluntary sector researchers.

Attending the event

VSSN aims to promote an understanding of the UK voluntary sector through research. The event is aimed at researchers, academics, doctoral students and practitioners in voluntary organisations or foundations interested in the UK voluntary sector. We also welcome policy makers engaged in the voluntary sector. We are always pleased to meet, and receive contributions from, colleagues from similar settings in other countries who are involved in the field. The working language is English.
