BCSDN is proud to announce that the study “Economic Value of the Non-Profit Sector in the Countries of the Western Balkans & Turkey” has been published. This is the first study ever that gives an overview of the current situation with the non–profit sector-related data collection, analysis and presentation in Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey. It provides information on the quality and reliability of data on the economic impact of the sectors in those countries, including also challenges that CSOs face to obtain relevant data. Furthermore, this in-depth research maps and illustrates the financial capacities, size, outputs and value of the sectors vis-à-vis the overall economy. It will contribute to the process of legitimizing the non-profit sector and its activities across the region by revealing its position in the employment and economic growth, which is often neglected.
