What is ANZTSR?

Launched in 1993, The Australian and New Zealand Third Sector Research Inc is a network of people pursuing and encouraging research into private, not-for-profit, community or voluntary organisations and the activities of volunteering and philanthropy.

ANZTSR joins similar organisations in the US (ARNOVA) and the UK (ARVAC) and the International Society for the Third Sector Research (ISTR) as active networks that promote communication between researchers and help develop synergies in the research endeavour. Research networks have also formed in several European countries and regions, in Latin America and Japan. These all testify to growing interest in the Third Sector.

ANZTSR would like to give special thanks to our patrons Emeritus Professor Jenny Onyx and Emeritus Professor Myles McGregor-Lownes OAM.
