Hello fellow OACers,
I wondered whether anyone has come across work done on the way in which work in charitable trusts interrelates with notions of giving, altruism, cooperation and so forth.
Work on charitable trusts in general also appreciated.
Thanks very much for any pointers...
Here is a review of 'third sector' (in the UK) organisations, and the focus is on the rhetoric of altruism.

There was a student at Aberdeen who did her dissertation on charities - Alison Brown was her supervisor - she might have more references.
