Pages 18

In this chapter we offer a comparative description and analysis of foundation roles, drawing on material presented in the various country chapters in Part II of this book.1 In line with our analytic questions and assumptions, we will first discuss roles and visions separately, and prepare the ground for the next chapter which will explore how they relate to each other as well as to the overall importance of foundations cross-nationally.2
