Because increased attention is being given to the problems and possibilities associated with interdependence among organizations and sectors in theory and practice, this introduction to the symposium emphasizes the importance of a rethinking of concepts, concerns, and strategies for interorganizational and intersectorial relationships. Described are the major themes of seven articles in the symposium which address issues of accountability in contracting, the validity of the three sector model, loss of organizational identity by nonprofits, virtual organizations, subversion of values in urban development policymaking, motivation in environmental networks, and deliberation in nonprofit organizations.
