Democracy and Public Management Reform

Social organizations are the prototype of public non-state service organizations. They are devoted to the public interest, but they are not part of the state apparatus, and do not have civil servants in their labour force. Social organizations are just one of the possible forms of public non-state service entities. They are typically service organizations, acting in the education, health care, culture, sport, and social assistance areas. They differ from public non-state social accountability or public advocacy organizations. The state essentially finances them , but they are stimulated to generate revenues and obtain donations. Dealing with a changing social environment, they may be more efficient because they are more autonomous.
