    Abstract

    This article explores the way in which voluntary and community sector bodies are shaped by patterns of public administration and by the funding policies of governments. Its focus is on the influence of local government (and current reforms of local government), in reshaping both the voluntary and community sector and patterns of local governance. In Ireland's two jurisdictions the relationships between the local state and civil society are structured in ways that reflect local partnership arrangements. These are also shaped by national legislation and by the European Union. Our comparative findings illuminate an issue that is of international interest.
