Editorial Preface

Theoretical papers in the Volunteering Review Volume 1, Issue 1 are around two extremely actual topics. On the one hand, studies departing from different approaches and by analysing some sub-sectors of volunteering make an assessment of the achievements, changes and challenges of volunteering in Hungary over the past decade. On the other hand, papers reveal the importance of volunteers' motivations by looking at both their theoretical and practical relevance. In this Issue the case study is about the role of volunteering in a specific field (integrated micro-regional children's programs) while the methodological paper analyses a particular form of volunteering, those activities that are carried out at music festivals.
