The Alteritas Lab focuses on understanding the role of law and policy in strengthening the space, capacity, legitimacy, and impact of civisolidarity-based organizations or nonprofits in society. It takes a special interest in the cartography and taxonomy of the third sector, the rules of legal incorporation, public registration, taxing, financing and the public procurement law for CSOs, as well as their interaction with the state apparatus, their responsibility towards beneficiaries, and the impact of private social investing in its mission and social development.
