Trends and dangers in US philanthropy — are there implications for Australia? Other events...
A public lecture by Mark Sidel, Doyle-Bascom Professor of Law and Public Affairs, University of Wisconsin-Madison.

In this lecture, Mark Sidel will discuss some important recent themes in US philanthropy – the role of philanthropy in an era of increasing wealth disparities; adaptations by US foundations to changing circumstances; the changing situations for community foundations; the increasing, and increasingly problematic role of philanthropy by the individually wealthy; the regulation/self-regulation dilemma in the US and elsewhere; the changing nature of philanthropy across borders; and other issues. He will also at least ask to what degree these issues may be present or playing out differently in some other jurisdictions.

Mark Sidel is Doyle-Bascom Professor of Law and Public Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and consultant for Asia at the Washington DC-based International Center for Not-for-Profit Law. He works on state-society relations, and particularly the regulation and self-regulation of philanthropy and the nonprofit sector, in Asia and the United States. Sidel is currently writing a book for the Brookings Institution on China’s relationships with the international nonprofit and foundation community under Xi Jinping, and doing research for a future volume on modern secessionary movements in the US and in comparative perspective.
