The Citizen is Elsewhere. Social Engagement between Civil Society and Market

This project aims at a theoretical and empirical analysis of the process of boundary-dissolution

of the civil society, focusing on the fuzzy area between civil society and market, and more

specific the phenomenon of corporate volunteering. Using a sociological-diagnostic paradigm,

we examine the institional and organizational embedding, the rationalities, practices and

experiences, and impact of this hybrid form of participation.
