Due to a lack of legal definition of volunteerism in Turkey, in the study emphasizing the regulation of rights and responsibilities of volunteer is left to the organization, discussing the topics should be covered with a possible legal regulation with a comparative perspective with EU countries.

The study focuses on volunteers working in the field of youth and children and addresses the ethical limits of the relationship between the volunteer and the non-governmental organization. Again, in the book, it is emphasized that volunteering does not automatically mean active citizenship and civic participation, and also underlined that CSOs should organize their relations with volunteers in a way that encourages participation.
