Third Sector Futures DialoguesDialogue one: The worst of times?24 September – 9 October 2012This discussion puts the ‘great unsettlement’ into context. How serious are theeconomic and political changes that the sector is currently experiencing? Is this asignificant turning point for the sector?

Third Sector Futures DialoguesDialogue three: Is the third sector so special? What is it worth?12 – 24 November 2012Does the sector have special or distinctive characteristics? How can we value this? Isthe sector’s ‘uniqueness’ being threatened by trends like professionalisation,contracting or marketisation?Dialogue four: Is the third sector being overwhelmed by the state and the market?13 – 26 January 2013How is the sector being shaped by its changing relationships with the state and themarket, including an increase in contracting? What do new models of funding mean forthe sector’s future?Dialogue five: A strategic lead for the third sector?10 – 23 February 2013Finally, we take a serious look at possible futures for the third sector. Should the sectorspeak with a strategic or coherent voice in order to negotiate its future? Who can orshould speak for the sector?Dialogue two: No longer a voluntary sector?22 October – 5 November 2012Here we focus on the people involved in the third sector, as volunteers, activists,trustees, frontline staff and managers. Is there a tension between paid and unpaidroles?
