Charity Law And Social Inclusion
An International Study
The social inclusion of marginalized groups, particularly immigrants, is a major concern of Western governments. Much on-the-ground work with marginalized groups is voluntary and philanthropic, and therefore governed by charity law. Little has been published to date which challenges charity law from a social perspective and this book is the first to study its application in addressing social exclusion. - explain charity law's capacity to obstruct modern charitable activity - provide an international comparative analysis of current charity law - examine the concepts of philantrophy, inclusion, alienation and justice - consider the competing claims of philantrophy, legal rights and politics as appropriate methods of pursuing social justice - showcase current examples of phlanthropic intervention, resulting in strate gic and sustainable community development projects - make recommendations for changes to the legal framework governing philan thropy Illustrating the importance of the needs of estranged minority culture groups, the legal framework and philanthropic resources as well as the extent to which this reasoning applies to such other socially disadvantaged groups, this book will appeal to academics and students in social policy, sociology and law as well as professionals in community and voluntary work.
