New book: ‘The Law of Third Sector Organizations in Europe’

The book ‘The Law of Third Sector Organizations in Europe: Foundations, Trends, and Prospects,’ edited by Antonio Fici, a professor at the University of Roma Tor Vergata, has been published by Springer. This book presents and discusses the law of third sector organizations in a selected number of European Union countries and in a comparative perspective, with the aim of providing a common basis for further legal analyses or legislative advancements both at the national and supranational level.

The book is divided into two parts. Part I explores how each national jurisdiction deals with the group of organizations identified by the authors as “third sector organizations,” regardless of the names or commonly known terms used for these organizations in each country or regulatory context.

Chapters in this first part of the book examine cases from Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and Spain.

The chapters in Part II of the book adopt a synthetic and comparative approach, outlining pathways for future research endeavours in legislation pertaining to the Third Sector.
