Cost-Benefit Analysis of the Draft Law on Volunteering
Prepared: december 2007
Volunteering is an important factor to compensate for the lack of government action or inefficiency of markets of services. The economic explanation of the value of volunteering is one of the key perspectives to justify the introduction of policies encouraging volunteering.
Volunteering compensates for budget deficit, reduces government expenditures, and contributes to decentralization and de-bureaucratization of the service delivery process. There are positive tangible effects on the economic environment and on the decrease of crime rates.
