Voluntarism and Voluntary Action

For as long as I remember the goal of my investigations has been to link learning with active citizenship and social movements. Voluntarism, voluntary action, and social movements, to me, are engines of social change.   I view voluntarism as a human phenomenon that defies easy definition or organization, owing to the many, even competing, stakeholders and contexts. The spheres of governmental, corporate and public sectors are moving ever closer together.  These days voluntary action is overly controlled. Safeguarding voluntary action means preserving human rights to assemble, to make free speech and to challenge the status quo. Feel free to browse these papers and presentations, and to offer comments on how we can do the job better.
