CSSI Praxis

The CSSI Community seeks to establish and nurture fruitful links between academia and organisations that practice cross-sector social interactions in profit, nonprofit and public sectors. For example, the Advisory Board and the Editorial Board of the ARSP are composed of practitioners and academics with the goal to combine both perspectives in the journal’s various articles. Moreover, the bi-annual CSSI Symposia Series encourages the participation of practitioners and academics to engage in boundary-spanning discussions, which does not only facilitate mutual learning, but can also give rise to shared CSSI projects.

The CSSI Community as an umbrella organisation collaborates with practitioner organisations that develop tools based on research and practitioner experience in order to provide straight forward guidance to those who are interested to practice cross-sector collaboration.


The Intersector Project seeks to empower practitioners in the business, government, and non-profit sectors to collaborate to solve problems that cannot be solved by one sector alone.
