Changing Patterns of State Funding for International Volunteering

This is the seventh in a series of discussion papers produced by the International FORUM on Development Service (FORUM), which follows on from our research work on trends in international volunteering and co-operation in recent years. One of the key trends identified in this time has been how changing patterns of State funding affects us as International Volunteer and Co-operation Organisations (IVCOs). This paper aims to consider some of the implications of changing patterns of State funding, what we can learn from this and identify some challenges for the future.
