Governance and Regulation in the Third Sector: International Perspectives (Book)

Susan Phillips and Steven Rathgeb Smith. Routledge Studies in the Management of Voluntary and Non-Profit Organizations, 294 pages, July 2012.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above:  Governance and Regulation in the Third Sector brings together scholars and experienced practitioners from different countries to investigate the relationship between regulation and relational governance for the third sector in a comparative context. Each chapter reviews recent regulatory changes in the country in question. To what extent are there significant convergences in these reforms and what are the implications for the third sector? Is there any evidence that the foundational architecture for a more collaborative relationship between the state and the third sector has been laid?  Overall, the book reveals that the reality of the supposedly new collaborative relationships and the impacts of regulatory reform are quite different from what contemporary theories of public management would have us believe. Recognizing the gap between theory and reality, the chapters explore some of the outstanding challenges for regulatory reform for the third sector.”

 

 

Nonprofit Sector Growth and Density: Testing Theories of Government Support

Jesse D. Lecy and David M. Van Slyke. Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, volume 23, issue 1, pages 189-214, January 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: Theories of nonprofit density have assumed a variety of dispositions toward the state, including opposition, suspicion, indifference, and mutual dependence. In this article, we conduct the first large-scale simultaneous empirical test of the two most prominent nonprofit theories: government failure theory and interdependence theory. The former characterizes nonprofit activities as substitute or oppositional to state programs, accounting for the limitations and failures of government-provided services and more reflective of the heterogeneity of demand for services. The latter emphasizes the more complementary and collaborative nature of nonprofit activities, focusing on the overlapping agendas of nonprofits and the state and the mutual dependency that arises from partnership. The theories are difficult to test empirically because both predict the same relationship between state capacity and the size of the nonprofit sector, albeit for theoretically distinct reasons. A true joint test requires the separation of government support from private support for nonprofits. Using a newly constructed panel dataset in which we separate out nonprofit revenue sources normally agglomerated in the Internal Revenue Service 990 data, we examine the empirical merits of both theories to answer the question of whether human service nonprofit organizations thrive when government fails or when government collaborates. Our findings suggest that government funding has a more favorable effect on nonprofit density than private donations. The findings raise several policy and management implications that need evaluation.”

Equity-Liability Accounting Debate in Worker Co-operative Entities Members’ Shares

Lorea Andicoechea and Miguel A. Zubiaurre. Journal of Co-operative Accounting and Reporting, volume 1, issue 1, Summer 2012

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: “It is generally accepted that common high quality financial information standards are essential in a global economy. The comparability of financial information is necessary in order to facilitate the decision-making process with regard to capital flows between different countries. This complex harmonization process focuses attention on investor- owned business. Nevertheless, this process cannot progress without an appropriate analysis of the nature of other types of entity. General criteria may be insufficient or inadequate when applied to entities, such as co-operatives, in which there is a difference from the basic ownership parameters of a company. International accounting standards setters are involved in a project that reconsiders the principles that should determine the distinction between equity and liabilities. Many of the specific characteristics of co-operatives have a bearing on the recognition and measurement of their equity in the balance sheet.

 

 

Lessons in Building a Better Community, One Voice at a Time

Erica Wood. The Foundation Review, volume 4, issue 4, pages 71-83, January 2013

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: “Silicon Valley Community Foundation partnered with area nonprofits and government agencies on a venture-philanthropy model initiative, Envision Bay Area, to engage residents and community leaders in conversations about growth. The community foundation developed an interactive web-based simulation tool, YouChooseBayArea.org, to provide graphic illustrations of the various ways a city can grow. This article examines what was learned about engaging new voices and the challenges that can occur in public forums. The effort brought government and nonprofits together to agree on a common direction for public input to inform important policy decisions around the region's future growth.”

The Different Conception of Economic Profit in Cooperatives

Juana Isabel Genovart Balaguer and Carlos J. Pomar Castellano. Journal of Co-Operative Accounting and Reporting, volume 1, issue 1, pages 29-52, summer 2012.

http://www.smu.ca/webfiles/2012-1-2-p2.pdf

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: In the field of business, the concept of result (surplus) is used to define the objective of the economic activity. Such an objective however could be very different depending upon the chosen perspective. Cooperative associations are a special kind of companies that combine economic and social objectives, trying to achieve their social aims while allowing the members to benefit from a positive financial profit, although not as a function of the contributed capital, but to the cooperative work they have served. This work reviews from a critical standpoint the concept of surplus (profit) currently applied to cooperatives, linking it with the foundational coop objectives. Along with the financial profit or loss, we propose to account for a second financial accounting profit by the enterprise, which we may call adjusted financial profit or loss. We also propose the introduction of a new accounting statement, which will allow obtaining further information about certain economic actions not entirely reflected in the current accounting statements of the cooperatives.”

 

 

Financial Performance and Efficiency of Consumer Co-operatives and Limited Companies - Agency Theoretical Approach

Pasi Syrjä, Helena Sjögrén and Pasi Tuominen. Journal of Co-Operative Accounting and Reporting, volume 1, issue 1, pages 53-69, summer 2012.

http://www.smu.ca/webfiles/2012-1-2-p3.pdf

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: “The main objective in this research paper is to contribute to the literature on the governance of co-operatives by offering new empirical evidence from a Finnish context about the differences between the financial performance and efficiency of co-operatives and limited companies. In this study we define these company forms according to the Finnish legislation (the Finnish Limited Liability Company Act for investor-owned businesses and the Co operative Act for co-operatives). The starting point of our work is the significant difference between the legal purpose of limited liability companies and consumer co-operatives and the accounts in the recent research about the accentuation of managerial power in consumer co-operatives. Therefore, in order to ascertain whether or not co-operatives operate according to their purpose, we examine how agency costs and surplus distribution differ between co-operatives and limited companies. The empirical data for the study was collected through a financial statement database. The initial population consisted of Finnish regional consumer co-operatives and private limited companies. The empirical data was analysed using quantitative methods. The analyses revealed that there are significant differences between co-operatives and limited companies. The main finding of our study was that agency costs are significantly higher in co-operatives than in limited companies, which is in line with the previous research.”

 

 

Third Sector Performance: Management and Finance in Not-for-Profit and Social Enterprises

Graham Manville and Richard Greatbanks.  Gower Pub Co edition, New edition, 192 pages, December 2012.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above:  Global financial crisis and colossal sovereign debt has resulted in the need for radical cuts in public expenditure in many countries. Against this background, the contributions in Third Sector Performance acknowledge that, as a result, more imaginative ways of delivering public services are being sought. In countries like the UK, the new concept of The Big Society envisages third sector, or not-for-profit, or charitable organizations and social enterprises stepping in to mitigate the loss of vital public services. This development also gives rise to the likelihood that third sector financial institutions such as credit unions and a possible 'Big Society Bank' will grow in importance. The performance of all these enterprises looks set to become a much more critical issue than it has been in the past.The editors have gathered in this volume, chapters reflecting the fact that third sector organizations are not the same as conventional businesses and are also subtly different from the public sector. There is currently a dearth of knowledge and a lack of research into issues around performance in the Third Sector or Civil Society. This book begins to fill a void in the knowledge base. The internationally sourced contributions represent a balanced offering of academic research findings and practitioner accounts from the Third Sector, together with a section devoted specifically to third sector finance institutions. This book will appeal, internationally, to policy makers within the third sector or involved in the management of n-f-p and voluntary organisations, as well as to those with responsibility for wider public policy, scholars teaching or researching in this area, and students of business and management preparing for roles in social enterprises.

An Overview of Management Systems in the Cooperative Sector. An Analysis of the Italian Leghe

Monia Castellini and Laura Maran. Journal of Co-Operative Accounting and Reporting, volume 1, issue 1, pages 5-28, summer 2012.

http://www.smu.ca/webfiles/2012-1-2-p1.pdf

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: The paper is aimed at identifying the role of the Italian associations of cooperatives in the cooperative sector and, specifically, it addresses the issues of strategy definition, performance monitoring and stakeholders’ openness. The cooperative sector is very important in the Italian economical and social system, in terms of diffusion, numbers and strategic relevance. The Third Sector literature on the cooperative system is sparse and there are few studies that deeply investigate the management and accounting objectives of the associations of cooperatives. The analysis was specifically addressed on the degree of coherence and the level of openness of the planning and control systems in the associations of cooperatives.”

Collective Strength and Mutual Aid: Financial Provisions for Members of Co-operative Societies in Britain

Nicole Robertson. Business History, volume 54, issue 6, pages 925-944, October 2012.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: “Notably one of the principles most prominently associated with Rochdale Co-operation is the system of paying dividend, a rate of return based on purchases rather than capital holding. This article argues that the dividend, though important, was only one aspect of financial assistance co-operative retail societies offered their members. By focusing on the period of the 1920s-40s, it explores how collective strength and mutual aid provided by societies extended to financial support during periods of economic crisis and industrial action. Credit in times of need was especially important for members of societies affected by trade depression, industrial crisis and unemployment during the interwar years. The article also argues that membership could give access to much wider support than is typically associated with the retail aspect of co-operative societies. For example, societies assisted individual members, or the families of members, during periods of illness and death. The article highlights how, as trading organisations, the spirit of mutual help within co-operative retail societies incorporated an element of collective expenditure. In addition to providing support for hospitals located in the communities in which they traded, societies also offered financial aid to nationally recognised charities. In this way financial assistance and support provided through the co-operative business model was not solely focused on extending the purchasing power of individual consumers.”

Le tiers secteur dans la co-construction des politiques publiques canadiennes

Yves Vaillancourt. Les Cahiers du CRISES, Collection Études théoriques, numéro ET1203, septembre 2012.

Résumé issu du l’URL ci-haut : « Après avoir rappelé la distinction faite entre la co‐production et la co‐construction des politiques publiques, l’auteur examine en premier lieu le rôle du tiers secteur dans la co‐construction de deux initiatives de politique publique développées par l’État fédéral canadien : le Voluntary Sector Initiative et le Plan de soutien à l’économie sociale. En deuxième lieu, l’auteur aborde la participation du tiers secteur à la co‐construction de politiques publiques provinciales, sous la responsabilité de l’État québécois, dans six champs de politique : la politique de reconnaissance des organismes communautaires autonomes, la politique de reconnaissance de l’économie sociale, la politique de services de garde à la petite enfance, la politique de soutien à domicile, la politique de logement social, et la loi québécoise pour combattre la pauvreté et l’exclusion sociale. Enfin, les initiatives de politique publique des gouvernements fédéral et provincial sont comparées et analysées sous l’angle de la co‐construction et, à la toute fin, l’auteur s’arrête sur les conditions à réunir pour favoriser une co‐construction démocratique des politiques. »

L’évolution du coopératisme dans le monde et au Québec (Livre)

Claude Béland. Édition FIDES, 320 pages, octobre 2012.

Résumé issu du l’URL ci-haut : « Le coopératisme, ce système fondé sur la liberté, l’égalité et la solidarité, a traversé les siècles, les guerres, les crises de toute nature — sans renoncer à ses valeurs et à ses principes. Il a permis à des millions de personnes de s’initier à la citoyenneté par l’éducation coopérative et la pratique de la démocratie participative. C’est par les hommes et les femmes regroupés dans des cellules démocratiques et coopératives que le monde pourra changer. Ce livre engage les citoyens de bonne volonté à reprendre le contrôle de leur développement et à assumer pleinement leur rôle de citoyens conscientisés dans notre monde politique et économique avant qu’il ne soit trop tard. »

 

L’économie sociale. Un projet politique en mouvement

Marie J. Bouchard. Article extrait de la revue Espaces, numéro 310, janvier 2013

Résumé issu du l’URL ci-haut : « L’économie sociale est une économie fondée sur des valeurs humaines et solidaires. Une analyse internationale du concept d’économie sociale montre qu’il n’y a pas un, mais des modèles de l’économie sociale liés à des visions politiques du rôle de l’État. Ainsi, dans les pays où l’État est providentialiste et interventionniste, l’économie sociale est conçue comme ayant un rôle complémentaire du marché et du réseau public. Dans une vision d’un État libéral, l’économie sociale est chargée des activités non marchandes, soutenues surtout par la philanthropie, le bénévolat et l’économie informelle. Dans une vision d’un État accompagnateur ou partenarial, l’économie sociale occupe une place légitime aux côtés de l’État et du marché, au sein d’une économie plurielle. »

Un dialogue intergénérationnel sur le modèle coopératif

Claude Béland, Jean-Emmanuel Bouchard  et Jean-Pierre Girard. Édition FIDES, 164 pages, novembre 2013.

Résumé issu du l’URL ci-haut : « Émaillé de nombreux exemples de coopératives à l’avant-garde de l’innovation, ce livre propose un partage d’idées basé sur un dialogue intergénérationnel de trois personnes séparées par l’âge et nécessairement par leur expérience, mais éprouvant le même intérêt à l’égard de la coopération. Claude Béland, qui a présidé le Mouvement Desjardins durant 13 ans, enseignait les fondements de l’action coopérative dès les années 1960. Premier directeur général de la Confédération québécoise des coopératives d’habitation, à la fin des années 1980, Jean-Pierre Girard a multiplié les activités de recherche et d’intervention sur les coopératives de solidarité et de santé. Président étudiant de la Fédération québécoise des coopératives en milieu scolaire (le réseau COOPSCO) depuis 2010, Jean-Emmanuel Bouchard compte déjà à son actif une mission coopérative au Pérou et la fréquentation des congrès de l’Alliance coopérative internationale. »

 

 

José Luis Monzón and Rafael Chaves. CIRIEC Report 2012, 115 p.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: In 2006, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) commissioned a Report from the International Centre of Research and Information on the Public, Social and Cooperative Economy (CIRIEC) in order to take stock of the Social Economy in the 25 member states of the European Union. A precondition for this stocktaking was to identify a core identity that is shared by all the companies and organisations in this sphere. Its purpose was highly practical: so that the Social Economy (SE) can be visualised and recognised. Which, how many, where, how they have developed, how large or important they were, how the public and governments saw them, what problems they solved and how they contributed to the creation and equitable distribution of wealth and to social cohesion and welfare: these are the questions that the Report addressed. In 2011 the EESC decided to bring the Report up to date in order to include the new member countries, Bulgaria and Romania, and two candidate countries, Croatia and Iceland, as well as the earlier members. Once more, it commissioned CIRIEC to carry out the work, the results of which are presented in this Report. The Report has been written by two experts from CIRIEC. The directors and writers, José Luis Monzón and Rafael Chaves, are both members of the Institute of the Social and Cooperative Economy of the University of Valencia (IUDESCOOP-UV) and of the CIRIEC International Scientific Committee for the Social Economy.”


 

Reflexiones en el marco de la economía social. Las cooperativas: cuestiones sin resolver

Ana Lambea Rueda. Revista Española del Tercero Sector, no 21.

Resumen proveniente del artículo: “En este artículo se presentan  algunos aspectos interesantes en materia Cooperativa. Partiendo de los principios de la Alianza Cooperativa Internacional, se plantean algunas de las cuestiones más actuales desde la perspectiva de incitar a la reflexión: su condición de agentes de la Economía Social, como referente de la Responsabilidad Social Empresarial, la titularidad de las masas patrimoniales que participan en la Cooperativa: capital social y masa en comunidad de gestión cooperativa, la demandada reforma del régimen fiscal de Cooperativas y las consecuencias de las modificaciones de las normas contables. También se presenta una breve descripción de la figura cooperativa y sus aspectos esenciales siguiendo la LC estatal actual, la normativa autonómica y europea, así como la evolución histórica de la misma, elaborada sin pretensión de exhaustividad, que constituye un punto de partida necesario en cualquier aproximación a la figura”.

 

La Empresa Cooperativa en el Mediterráneo             

CEPES - Confederación Empresarial Española de la Economía Social, 40 páginas.

http://www.cepes.es/publicacion_cepes=91

Resumen proveniente del site web de AECID: El informe “La empresa cooperativa en el Mediterráneo” presenta la situación de las sociedades cooperativas en los países del Sur del Mediterráneo y en Europa, donde se contabilizan más de 200.000 empresas de este tipo que agrupan a 170 millones de miembros y generan 6,3 millones de empleos [...] El informe aborda la situación y el papel de las cooperativas como un actor clave del desarrollo económico y social de Europa y de sus vecinos del Sur del Mediterráneo. Para ello, la publicación cuenta con la colaboración de responsables y expertos de 12 países del Mediterráneo (Argelia, Egipto, España, Francia, Italia, Jordania, Líbano, Marruecos, Palestina, Portugal, Túnez y Turquía), quienes ponen de relieve la fuerte implantación socio-económica de las cooperativas, con 200.000 sociedades que agrupan a más de 170 millones de miembros y generan 6,3 millones de empleos. Asimismo, coinciden en señalar la importancia de este modelo de empresa en la creación de empleos y en la generación de riqueza en una región que está viviendo grandes cambios económicos, políticos y sociales con la llegada de la “Primavera Árabe”.

 

 

Le tourisme social. Un secteur de l’économie sociale marqué par l’intervention publique.

Louis Jolin. Article extrait de la revue Espaces, numéro 310, janvier 2013.

Résumé issue de lu l’URL ci-haut : « Si le tourisme s’inscrit bine dans la sphère de l’économie sociale, du fait notamment de l’intervention de la société civile, il s’en éloigne en ce qui concerne sa relation aux pouvoir public. Pour le tourisme social, ces derniers sont responsables de politiques et de mesures sociales visant à accroître l’accessibilité aux vacances et au tourisme, tandis que l’économie sociale revendique plutôt son indépendance par rapport à l’État et aux pouvoirs publics. Et si l'avenir du tourisme social passait, entre autres, par le renouvellement des relations entre les associations de tourisme social et les pouvoirs publics ? »
