The chief objective of this PDW is to provide an opportunity for researchers interested in exploring the roles of nonprofits, philanthropy, or other socially- oriented private organizations in a neoliberal democratic state. Given the dispersed and diverse nature of such research, the primary goal of the PDW is to begin to cultivate and nurture a research community. We hope that the PDW will begin conversations and collaborations between individuals and universities, with the goal of working together to set and advance a research agenda. During the workshop we will explore new trends in how nonprofit organizations and philanthropic institutions are engaging in public policy and implementation processes; and raise questions about the broader effects of nonprofit activities on democratic governance and on the nonprofit and philanthropic sector overall.
