This paper provides critical reflections from a cross-disciplinary conversation on the directions of current theory and practice and shares critical thinking on other possible theory and practice outlooks for a (re)integrated civil society, state and market. This reflective process was used to generate critical questions for third sector theorists and practitioners in the (not necessarily new or unique) climate of 'facing crises'. In the quest for such alternative theory and practice directions beyond western welfare states, and attempts to create welfare systems in transitioning social systems, such critical reflection and questioning is central. This means thinking from society rather than from sectors. With this it is future and challenge oriented rather than functionalist.
