‘The Role of Philanthropy in Society’ study, started in 2016 by Philanthropy for Social Justice and Peace, has now been completed after the publication of their latest report. The aim of the study is to gain an understanding of the role that philanthropy is playing in society in various countries across the world. What’s happening now and what potential role could it play in the future?

The study was driven by the lack of knowledge of the scale and role of philanthropy in countries where philanthropy is culturally rooted but not well documented and often less institutionalized, mainly in emerging market countries.

The results of the study provide an understanding of the current landscape of philanthropy – including trends, strengths and weaknesses, what inhibits or supports it, what makes it more or less effective in terms of furthering progressive social change causes in a range of countries. It also draws out strategies that work if philanthropy is to be an effective agent of social transformation.

The reports were authored by former Alliance magazine editor Caroline Hartnell and current associate editor Andrew Milner.
