Models of Cross-Sector Cooperation of Government and Socially Oriented NPO in Moscow
The question of public and nonprofit sectors cooperation has been much discussed by Russian and foreign scholars in the last decades. Resent research has centered on explaining Western countries successful experience where cross-sector partnership in the social sphere has become a vital part of society. Due to the fact that this practice in Russia is only at implementation stage, Russian scholars have not made many efforts to identify the most common collaboration models of public and third sectors. Therefore, this study aims at identifying such models of public-nonprofit sector social partnership in Moscow employing qualitative methodology. First, 15 in-depth interviews were conducted, then, based on interviews analysis a 4 types of government and social-oriented nonprofit organisations cooperation were identified. Moreover, this project is based on the analysis of regulatory legal acts and consists of a descriptive and exploratory research for constructing the expanded model of relations between society and the government in the social sphere. This study could be useful for developing theoretical frame-work of cross-sector social partnerships in Russia, decision-making in cross-sector social partnership at the regional level and managing social-oriented nonprofit organizations.
