Process: State of the World's Volunteerism Report
The preparation of the State of the World’s Volunteerism Report involved a wide range of research and related activities. These were undertaken to ensure the widest possible consideration of available information. Also considered were the opinions of stakeholders in the field of volunteerism such as politicians, government officials, international civil servants, academics, development practitioners and volunteers. Activities included a literature review; research on estimating the magnitude of volunteerism using national data; analysis of volunteerism terminology using international data banks; preparation of thematic background papers; in-depth interviews; establishment of a network of online researchers on proverbs and media; online discussions in development networks; and regional and thematic consultations.
