The problems of interaction between municipalities and non-governmental organizations in two Lithuanian municipalities: From social models point of view

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The article analyses the problem of interaction between Lithuanian municipalities and non-governmental organizations on the basis of two social models. The theoretical basis of the article is formed on the insights into New Governance and New Institutional Economics social models, and the empirical basis is an interview-based survey of 12 leaders of non-governmental organizations (6 from Vilnius city and 6 from Ukmerge district). The article not only states the insufficient level of social capital at the interaction of municipalities and non-governmental organizations but also presents the measures to improve it by promoting higher levels of interaction, enhancing the potential of non-governmental organizations and reducing the asymmetrical information.
