Roland Keszi, Pál Judit, Gergő Papp


In this paper we present the results of analysis into the collaboration network of disability organizations in Hungary using survey and social network research methods. The aim was to compare Hungarian and international cases regarding cooperation between disability organizations. Consequently, we tried to find answers to the following questions: (1) what types of organizations are disability organizations in contact with? (2) what influences selection of partner organizations? (3) in what areas? (4) how often? and, (5) under what form do these organizations cooperate with each other? Results showed that all forms of cooperation are considered advantageous. By analyzing specific name-generated cooperation networks we also found that the larger, national organizations have a dominant role in applications and project implementation arrangements.
