<p>Reviewing the 20 years of research on social welfare and NPOs from the following four perspectives. The first is the global neoliberal policy trend and the "resonance" phenomenon with NPOs. This made possible the NPO law and the public long-term care insurance system, which were not only forward but also reverse. The second is evaluation of welfare NPO activities. Consider NPOs that are active in public long-term care insurance, using Salamon's four-function theory as a reference framework. The third is the issue of "managing the non-profit organizations". What is "management" of a non-profit organization under the long-term care insurance system? Is it possible to apply Drucker's theory to non-profit organizations in Japan? The fourth is "partnership between the government and NPOs". "Partnership" in Japan may be different from Salamon's "third-party government" theory. From this point of view, we examine theoretical issues between welfare and NPOs in Japan.</p>
