Third Sector Governance in Vietnam
With the introduction of a socialist system, a new socio-economic and political space was created in Vietnam in the 1950s. The system was characterised by a highly centralised system with three pillars: the Party, the government and the mass organisations. The Party’s all encompassing power has waned in the recent past, and a clearer boundary between the roles and the responsibilities of the Party and that of the government has emerged. The mass organisations, under the umbrella of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF), with wide participation of individuals from a wide spectrum of social groups, are organised by the state with a clear mandate, among others, of mobilising people to achieve nationally defined goals.
