Abstrakt

The chapter provides an overview of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in Estonia. More specifically, it discusses prominent features of the sector's development in the 2000s, including an ongoing professionalization of the organizations and the emergence of symbiotic relations with the state and local authorities. On the one hand, such development could be seen as a strengthening of civil society due to the increased access of NGOs to public resources, and to the sector's more established social position. On the other hand, it could also lead to the weakening of its function as a central component of civil society.
