More democracy by civic engagement - Do community foundations strengthen the local civil society? Mehr Demokratie durch Bürgerengagement - Stärken Bürgerstiftungen die lokale Zivilgesellschaft? deposit-license Schomacher, Gereon 2011-03-24T10:09:37Z deu application/pdf Civic engagement has become of special interest to the public and the political establishment in recent years. It is expected, that the citizens´ participation in the diverse appearances of the civil society wil complement the representative government and hence stabilize the democracy.<br />A new organizational form of the Third Sector that pursue these goals is the community foundation. It tries to achieve positive effects for civic engagement, civil society and democracy by combining the model of the foundation with some elements of the club (German: Verein). Well known in the USA and in Great Britain, it is discovered in Germany only a few years ago and becomes more and more popular.<br />Goal of this dissertation was it to investigate if these effects can be achieved by this model. For that purpose criterias of different approaches to the civil society were elaborated, beginning with the ideas of Alexis de Tocqueville via Habermas theory of deliberative democracy to Robert Putnams concept of social capital.<br />Along these criterias the community foundations of Hamburg and Dresden were exemplarily scrutinized. Their internal constitution, their activities, their connections to the state and to other organizations, their presence in local public and their support of civic engagement were analysed by the means of document analysis, expert interviews and questionaires.<br />The examination of these two examples shows that community foundations can strenghten the democracy especially because of their stabilizing effects for the civic engagement, their support policy and their creation of forums in wich people can contribute their views. It works out that the effects depend on the influences of the distinctive local enviroment in wich community foundations act in. At any rate they represent an enrichment of the Third Sector. 2001 2011-03-24T10:09:37Z Schomacher, Gereon
