The restructuring and responsibility distribution processes to which European welfare systems are being subjected place the third sector in a prominent position. In this respect, the relational and representational procedures established between the third sector and the public administration play an important role in this debate. The Gipuzkoa case, characterised by the approval of a new regulatory framework and the launch of a joint creation process, exemplifies this trend and has established itself as a scenario of reflection for the improvement of the representational procedures and the welfare system as a whole. Based on a participatory methodology founded on qualitative techniques, such as the semi-structured in-depth interview and the discussion group, and in order to examine the potential for creating a round table for civil dialogue in the region, professionals from the public administration and the third sector have been given a voice. This article sets out the key findings of that process, focusing especially on different elements that have led the debate and which concern both the third sector and the public administration in view of the scope for creating a new arena for representation.
