Call for Contributions: Upcoming ISTRAN Newsletters

09 March, 2017

The International Society for Third Sector Research Africa Network (ISTRAN) is a community of scholars, practitioners and policy makers who share an interest in and concern for civil society organisations (CSOs), the form they take, their role and how they function on the African content. Network members only have the opportunity to meet at the biennial regional conference and sometimes at the international ISTR conference, which also takes place every other year. As a result, they have limited opportunities to share information and be updated on developments in the field.
The purpose of the ISTRAN newsletter, among others, is to try and address this shortcoming by providing a more frequent and accessible platform for members to share their opinions and research. It is also a platform for members to share and receive information about civil society related developments, relevant research, new and/or interesting publications as well as available opportunities.

The ISTRAN secretariat, therefore, invites you to contribute to the upcoming April and July newsletters
