Review by Wilde Ganzen

A well-written paper, in which the information and opinions obtained from 19 philanthropy experts in Indonesia is structured along the abovementioned topics.
This is a valuable report, especially for those interested in:
• the motivations of different persons who practice philanthropy: knowing these may help you decide how you could approach them or their peers
• the influence of political space that can constrain philanthropy
