The reform of non-profit organizations and Church bodies: a cost, a risk or an opportunity?

ABSTRACT: While many institutional activities of Church bodies fall within the scope of the recent reform of Italian law on non-profit organizations ("NPOs"), the specific features of Church bodies prevent from a straightforward application of the new regime. Therefore, the Code for the Third Sector and the Act on Social Enterprises allow Church bodies to access the tax exemptions and the other benefits provided to NPOs as far as they comply with a set of conditions aimed at bridging the differences between Church bodies and secular NPOs. The paper (1) discusses in details these conditions, (2) offers a critical evaluation of costs, risks, and opportunities related to the new regime, and (3) suggests possible organizational structures to comply with the current system.

The Third Sector Code: arrival point or starting point for the religious bodies’ palingenesis?

ABSTRACT: Adopted on July 2017, the Third Sector Code promotes social groups to guarantee the constitutional principles of pluralism, participation, social solidarity, substantial equality. The essay analyses what are the most important innovations and the critical issues of Third Sector’s reform, in the law and religion’s perspective and in the canon law’s perspective. Indeed, this legal reform raises fundamental questions, involving Third Sector bodies, that are, at the same time, religious bodies, such as the importance to have in our legal system a general law for religious bodies. Furthermore, Pope Francis’ teaching recalls an ethic dimension in the economic activities for the Catholic bodies.

Catholic Church entities and the reform of the Third sector in Italian legislation. Canonical implications

ABSTRACT: This paper deals with the canonical implications of Italy’s recent Third sector reform in Italian legislation (d. lgs n. 117/2017) for Catholic Church entities and/or agencies for charitable purposes. It starts with some preliminary remarks on the recent evolution of Canon Law concerning the discipline of charitable organizations and agencies that followed the Motu proprio Intima Ecclesiae natura, issued by Pope Benedict XVI in December 2012. It then examines the general framework of the new regulation of non profit organizations in Italian law, emphasizing the pros and cons (opportunities and risks) of its application to religious entities, particularly those connected to the Catholic Church, which in Italy traditionally enjoy a special discipline safeguarding their canonical structure and purposes. The paper then focuses on the impact of the new civil regulation that allows a wide range of charitable initiatives on behalf of religious organizations, on the governance of Catholic Church entities, which are submitted to the directives and authorizations of ecclesiastical authorities. Finally, it draws some conclusive remarks on the need to update and reform some administrative rules and praxis concerning the administration and finance of charitable institutions in Canon Law.

Canonistic Reflections of the Reform of the Third Sector

ABSTRACT: Third sector reform started with the delegation law n. 106 of 6 June 2016 undoubtedly involves canon law in its form and substance. The new legislation on the Third sector allows in a certain sense to "recover" many of the typically canonical activities of the religious entity within its "civil" structure in a way more coherent with the religious and canonical nature of the institution itself with respect to the law 222 of 1985. If we look at the activities that Legislative Decree 117 of 2017 calls (Article 5) "Activities of general interest", we highlight how many of them are specific and characterizing religious bodies of the Catholic tradition. The Author in particular highlights how the civilly recognized religious bodies, if they want to regulate some of their activities according to the new discipline on Third sector bodies and the Social enterprise, must undergo some canonical obligations (drafting of a regulation, written license of the Ordinary and creation of destined assets).

Enti ecclesiastici e Terzo settore. Annotazioni prospettiche - di Giuseppe Dalla Torre

SOMMARIO: 1. 1. Nuovi orizzonti - 2. Un caso positivo di secolarizzazione - 3. Codice del Terzo settore e iniziative caritative della comunità ecclesiale - 4. Opportunità aperte da un’alternativa - 5. L’azione caritativa tra diritto speciale e diritto comune.

ABSTRACT: Except for the matter of the clergy sustenance, the current discipline of the Concordat on ecclesiastical institutions is still affected, in spite of everything, by the conditioning deriving from juridical schemes dating back in time, which sacrifice and make precarious their solidarity activities. The fall of the diffidence of the Italian legal system towards the initiatives between the State and the Market, and therefore the recent reform of the Third sector with the enhancement of the non-profit organization’s activities, represent a precious opportunity for the charitable initiatives of the ecclesial communities.

L’impatto del nuovo Codice del Terzo settore sulla disciplina degli “enti religiosi” - di Pierluigi Consorti

SOMMARIO: 1. Gli “enti ecclesiastici” fra legge delega e decreto legislativo - 2. Questioni di nome - 3. Questioni di sostanza - 4. Gli enti ecclesiastici civilmente riconosciuti sono enti del Terzo settore? - 5. Cenni alla disciplina tributaria.

The impact of the new “Third Sector Code” on the regulation of “religious bodies”.

ABSTRACT: Italian Law regulates in a special way “ecclesiastical bodies”, the entities that have been recognized as “legal person” by the Law of the State according to the bilateral agreements signed in conformity with Italian Constitution. Nevertheless, these entities are regulated as well by other laws regarding their “not religious” activities, such as social assistance, education (as schools and universities), health care (as hospitals and retirement communities). On July 2017 has been adopted a new Law on the so called “Third Sector”, that impacts on the current legislation in several points. In this essay, I discuss the legitimacy of the adopted denomination of “religious bodies” instead of “ecclesiastical bodies”, that it is not a mere nominalist issue, because it changes many rules. Then I examine the practical implications related to this new legal expression, wondering if those religious/ecclesiastical bodies are “Third Sector entities”. In my opinion, the answer is negative. In the last paragraph, I address the consequences of the new “Third Sector Code” on tax aspects.

Religious Organizations and Third Sector Reform Act: new distinctions among Religious Organizations

ABSTRACT: This essay recalls the intertwining between religious organizations and third sector organizations hitherto well-established in Italian law. Then it examines the Third Sector Reform Act recently approved in Italy, which in its turn subjects religious organizations, under certain terms, to third sector regulations. The essay focuses on the fresh distinctions introduced by the said Reform among various types of religious organizations and underlines the new, consequent discrepancies in the overall regulation of these organizations.
