The collection covers topics never previously aired in public, such as EU competition law and trade associations; the impact of the governance White Paper on associations; the role of the Secretary General; the legal framework for associations; recruitment and retention of members from the south of Europe and enlargement countries; perspectives from public interest groups and contested environments; and the role and value of trust in associations."--BOOK JACKET
