Call for Papers - Third Sector Review

Special 2021(1) Issue of Third Sector Review on ‘Charities & Crises: Impacts and Responses’

Recent times have witnessed a series of profound crises: health and economic (COVID-19), social (mosque shootings in New Zealand and Black lives matter protests) and environmental (Australian bushfires).

These crises are causing material disruption to the way that charities raise 
revenue and carry out their activities. This poses both challenges and
opportunities for funders, charities and regulators. How have giving patterns
changed in response? Is there a need for greater consumer protection for
emotive crowd-funding responses to severe crises? How should managers
of charities deal with the financial uncertainty and change?

Articles examining charities and crises – broadly conceived as set out
above - are welcomed from different disciplinary perspectives including
law, psychology, history, business and political science.
