ISTR. The International Society for Third Sector Research

Founded in 1992, the International Society for Third-Sector Research (ISTR) is a major international association promoting research and education in the fields of civil society, philanthropy, and the non-profit sector.

The Society’s mission is to promote the development of high quality research and education internationally on third sector-related issues, theories, and policies; and to enhance the dissemination and application of knowledge about the third sector as widely as possible throughout the world. ISTR strives to broaden the participation of researchers in all parts of the world and in all disciplines, with special emphasis given to expand the number of third sector researchers in developing nations and Central and Eastern Europe.
