This chapter studies the state-third sector partnership frameworks. It considers the argument that the signing of the partnership framework agreements between the third sectors and governments needs to be understood in two ways. First, it should be understood as a shift in welfare administration, and second, it needs to be understood as a step that is usually demanded by the sector. The chapter also argues that the appearance of national-level formal agreements reflects and reinforces the arrival of a new relationship between the welfare states and civil society.

Keywords:   partnership frameworks, state, third sector, civil society, welfare states
