The ancient Binnenhof, seat of the Dutch executive within the Hague, supplied the environment (January 1985) for a convention within which members from 11 nations met to think about the subject: help networks in a worrying neighborhood: study and coverage, truth and fiction. on the outset, convention management - supplied via Professors J.M.L. Jonker (The Netherlands) and R.A.B. Leaper (United nation) advised the conferees to not enable their enthusiasm for casual help networks to mix with the pervasive expertise of the disasters of welfare states right into a simplistic stance of advocacy, with a consequent entice politicians to direct country money consequently. valid criticisms of the responses of welfare states to the wishes of electorate have been to be visible because the context for dialogue, now not the substance of convention deliberations. extra in particular, whether it is now obvious to many of us that governmental assistance of people with social wishes may end up in an bad dependency at the a part of more and more passive voters, that wisdom doesn't lend logical help to an ideological place that governmental expenses are pern~c~ous according to se - to get replaced as swiftly as attainable by means of a go back to reliance on self, relations, associates and institutions which are constructed voluntarily and financed by way of people who are sufficiently interested.
