Conference Information:


Charity Law and Change

Research Conference


Date: 21-22 February 2002

Location: British Embassy/Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin


Charitable organisations have made it to the top of the political agenda in recent years. Their growing importance has been recognized not only as care providers, but also with regard to fullfilling tasks the state cannot or will not fullfill and as a tool for democratic participation.


The aim of the conference is to look at

  • the legal framework in which charities operate in UK and Germany
  • the role of charities in modern society


It is also an opportunity to compare British and German views and to discuss options for future policies.
