Philanthropy and law in Asia:a comparative study of the nonprofit legal systems in ten Asia Pacific societies
A comprehensive comparison of nonprofit law and policy issues in ten major Asian countries. Brief Description: This book is a collection of reports from ten Asian nations (Australia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, The Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam) providing a comparison of the laws and public policy regulating and influencing the nonprofit sectors in those countries. Based on the Asia Pacific Philanthropy Consortium's Comparative Nonprofit Law Project, this book provides international audiences with an understanding of the legal and regulatory framework affecting the nonprofit sector in Asia. The goal in making this material available is to assist governments, nonprofits, foundations, and international organizations like the World Bank understand the ways in which nonprofits are regulated and structured throughout the region - allowing for better intergovernmental cooperation and legal synergism. The ultimate goal of the project is to strengthen the nonprofit sector in this important region of the world.
