2018 State of the World's Volunteerism Report: The thread that binds
Reports
Each report examines the contribution of volunteerism to peace and development through a specific theme. UNV released the first SWVR in 2011 with a focus on universal values for global well-being. In 2015 the second SWVR presented a global review of the role of volunteerism in improving the way citizens are governed and engaged. The third SWVR, to be launched in December 2018, will look at volunteerism and community resilience.
Evidence and Research
The SWVR development process includes new research to inform policy and practice on volunteerism for development. UNV also convenes stakeholders as part of the global research agenda on volunteerism.
