La gouvernance mutualiste comme levier de contrôle: le cas d'une banque

Christine Marsal. Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics, volume 84, issue 1, pages 83-101, March 2013.

Résumé issu de l’URL ci-haut : « Il est courant de mettre en doute la réalité du pouvoir des sociétaires élus dans les organes de gouvernance des banques coopératives. Plus encore, lorsqu'il s'agit d'analyser les mandats des élus de caisse locale. Notre recherche a pour objectif d'analyser plus finement les termes de leur engagement. Les résultats de notre étude de cas, montrent que les élus participent à différents leviers de contrôle. Cette participation contribue à canaliser l'action des dirigeants et des cadres intermédiaires. »

Cooperatives as Sustainable Livelihood Strategies in Rural Mexico

Robin King, Marina A. Adler and Margaret Grieves. Bulletin of Latin American Research, volume 32, issue 2, pages 163-177, March 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: The sustainable livelihoods perspective and cooperative movement are rooted in frameworks that value social justice in the form of participatory democracy, distributional equity, and solidarity. Unlike studies of cooperatives that focus mainly on economic efficiency and productivity, we argue that this socio-political dimension of the cooperative projects is crucial for understanding their potential as sustainable livelihoods. This exploratory research examines the experiences of two rural Mexican communities in Guanajuato and Oaxaca, which formed cooperatives as alternative livelihood strategies. Our results show that each community used similar grassroots political culture to develop cooperatives designed to meet local needs.”


Running on Empty: The Operating Reserves of U.S. Nonprofit Organizations

Thad Calabrese. Nonprofit Management and Leadership, volume 23, issue 3, pages 281-302, Spring 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: Operating reserves allow nonprofit organizations to smooth out imbalances between revenues and expenses, helping to maintain program output in the presence of fiscal shocks. We know surprisingly little about why nonprofits might save operating reserves and what factors explain variation between organizations' savings behavior. Findings suggest that operating reserves are reduced in the presence of concentrated public funds, access to debt, fixed assets, and endowment. However, size is not an important predictor, indicating that the lack of reserves is not limited to small nonprofit organizations but is instead a sectorwide issue. Significant numbers of nonprofits maintain no operating reserves at all. One potential explanation is that organizations discount the benefits of reserves because they are evaluated on spending, focusing instead on the “benefits of costs.” This preference for spending over reserving may also help explain the general lack of liquidity in the sector beyond operating reserves alone.”


Community development through collaborative management of protected areas: evidence from Bangladesh with a case of Rema-Kalenga Wildlife Sanctuary

Mohammad Shaheed Hossain Chowdhury, Masao Koike, Parvez Rana and Nur Muhammed. The International Journal of Sustainable Development and World Ecology, volume 20, issue 1, pages 63-74, February 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: Community involvement in protected area management is a relatively new practice in Bangladesh, initiated with the dual purpose of limiting forest degradation and enhancing community development. In this article, we focused on the latter, presenting the results of a community survey in and around Rema-Kalenga Wildlife Sanctuary, where collaborative management has been underway since 2004. A total of 302 members of the forest user groups (FUGs) were randomly selected and interviewed (23% of whom were female). Informants reported a satisfactory level of socio-economic development in the community since the initiation of the new management strategy. Two activities included in the collaborative management strategy- the provision of training for alternative income generating (AIG) activities and the allotment of available vacant lands for agriculture- significantly increased the community's annual income. Empowerment and improved social dignity of female participants was an additional outcome of the collaborative management approach. Community members also identified numerous shortcomings of the collaborative management project including failure to provide AIG training options that truly met the needs of the community, inequity in the distribution of training, and absence of pro-people manners of the local Co-management Committee toward community members. These shortcomings need to be addressed before the full potential of this, or any other participatory program of protected area management in Bangladesh can be realized.”


A Mission of Civic Engagement: Undergraduate Students Working with Nonprofit Organizations and Public Sector Agencies to Enhance Societal Wellbeing

Karin Braunsberger and Richard O. Flamm. Voluntas: International Journal of Voluntary and Nonprofit Organizations, volume 24, issue 1, pages 1-31, January 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: Universities in the U.S. have been criticized for not contributing enough to the social well-being of the communities within which they operate, and business schools have been accused of failing to prepare students adequately for careers in business. These criticisms have led to increased focus on service learning, a form of experiential learning that aids students in the application of theoretical knowledge to ‘‘real-life’’ situations—including problems and opportunities—faced by local as well as international communities. Even though service-learning has become fairly popular in business schools throughout the U.S., there is relatively little literature that illuminates its application. Thus, the present article describes a service-learning project in a marketing research course and how this project supports the university’s mission of civic engagement. Included are also a discussion of course-specific objectives as well as learning goals, objectives, and assessments as commonly required by regional and national accreditation agencies.”

 

La Economía Social en Quebec: Resistencia, fuerza y esperanza social

Léopold Beaulieu. Cayapa, Revista Venezolana de Economía Social, año 12, no. 23, p. 49-64, 2012.

Resumen proveniente del artículo: “Este artículo aborda el estado de la situación de la Economía Social en Quebec. Después de una breve reseña histórica, se enfoca en el período que se abrió con la crisis de 1980, con la ola de liberalización económica y el cuestionamiento del roll del Estado como resultante. Acto seguido, se abordan algunas cuestiones importantes frente a las cuales la economía social debe proporcionar soluciones originales. Finalmente, se presenta la experiencia de “Fondaction CSN”, que sirve de guía para precisar las motivaciones de la participación de Fondaction y el CIRIEC- Canadá y para explorar algunas pistas de colaboración entre América Latina y Quebec.”


La economía comunitaria de reciprocidad en el nuevo contexto de la Economía Social y Solidaria: Una mirada desde Bolivia

Julio Alvarez Quispe. Otra Economía: Revista Latinoaericana de Economía Social y Solidaria, vol. 6, no. 11, p. 159-170, 2012.

Resumen proveniente del artículo: “Este trabajo pretende comprender la dinámica económica propia de los pueblos indígenas, como una alternativa en el gran tejido de la Economía Social y Solidaria, que se va construyendo en América Latina, con diferentes matices en cada uno de los Estados; en este caso es una lectura desde el Nuevo Estado Plurinacional de Bolivia. Es un ejercicio de análisis de la economía comunitaria de reciprocidad, bajo la figura del don. Paradigmáticamente toma como referencia teórica aquella desarrollada por Dominique Temple, al que se suman Alain Caillé y Jacques Godbout, quienes han generado en los últimos años una nueva vertiente epistemológica. El trabajo es corroborado con ejercicios de campo en el Municipio de Viacha y otros escenarios del departamento de La Paz.

Auditor Performance, Client Satisfaction and Client Loyalty: Evidence from Belgian Non-Profits

Anne­-Mie Reheul, Tom Van Caneghem and Sandra Verbruggen. International Journal of Auditing, volume 17, issue 1, pages 19-37, March 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above:Based on a large-scale survey, we explore auditor performance perceptions among a sample of Belgian non-profits. In addition, we examine the relationship between (i) perceived auditor performance and client satisfaction with the auditor; and (ii) client satisfaction with and client loyalty towards the auditor. Moreover, we contrast the ability of two alternative performance scales (i.e., one borrowed from the service quality literature and the other derived from the auditing literature) in explaining overall client satisfaction with the auditor. Overall results are indicative of a high degree of satisfaction with and loyalty towards the auditor. In addition, our findings suggest that the drivers of client satisfaction (and loyalty) are behavioral, rather than economic in nature. Our results indicate that the measurement scale derived from the auditing literature is slightly better in explaining overall satisfaction with the auditor.

Managerial Networking in Nonprofit Organizations: The Impact of Networking on Organizational and Advocacy Effectiveness

Morgen Johansen and Kelly LeRoux. Public Administration Review, volume 73, issue 2, pages 355–363, March 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: “Public management scholars are interested in the ways that public managers can improve the performance of their organizations and, by extension, public service outcomes. However, public sector outcomes are increasingly being produced by nonprofit organizations. Nonprofits have encountered increased pressures to improve effectiveness in recent years, both from their funding entities and from the public. A growing body of public management research has shown that managerial networking can pay dividends for organizational effectiveness, yet no studies to date have considered the effects of managerial networking on nonprofit effectiveness. This is the first study to apply the basic elements of Meier and O'Toole's model to the nonprofit sector. Using survey data from a random sample of 314 nonprofit human service organizations in 16 U.S. states, the authors explore the frequency of various networking relationships on organizational and advocacy effectiveness. The findings reveal that political networking increases advocacy effectiveness and community networking increases organizational effectiveness.”


Between Nonprofit Management and Social Entrepreneurship

Peter Frumkin. Public Administration Review, volume 73, issue 2, pages 372-376, March 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: “Everyone would like to change the world for the better, and social entrepreneurship is the big new idea for doing just that. However, the very concept of social entrepreneurship provokes considerable consternation. What is social entrepre-neurship? And why do we need the language of social entrepreneurship when we have the more familiar idea of nonprofit management? Though answers to these questions may remain elusive, one thing is certain: students, practitioners, and researchers have embraced the concept of social entrepreneurship, filling new classes at universities in the United States and abroad, launching new support and fellowship programs aimed at promoting the work of real-world social entrepreneurs, and lining library shelves with new books on this emerging field. In the midst of this flurry of activity, three morebooks spanning these conceptual hurdles have been released. One book operates within the social entrepreneurship paradigm, one book is located squarely in the nonprofit man-agement paradigm, and a third book seeks to move beyond the two domains to a conversation about the nature of social change.”


Integrated or Disconnected? Examining Formal and Informal Networks in a Merged Nonprofit Organization

Bin Chen and James Krauskopf. Nonprofit Management and Leadership, volume 23, issue 3, pages 325-345, Spring 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: This article introduces nonprofit researchers and practitioners to a social network analytical technique for assessing internal staff relationships after a merger. We studied a case of a nonprofit merger, investigating its formal and informal intraorganizational networks to see which parts integrated and which remained separate operationally. We discovered a prior-organizational-affiliation-based homophily within the merged organization: most interpersonal relationships existing within these networks remained among the employees who worked together prior to the merger. However, the informal and expressive networks of mentoring, friendship, and socioemotional support were even more disconnected than the formal and instrumental networks of work relationships and problem solving. We highlight the role of a mentoring network in bridging formal and informal networks in a merged organization.”


A Strategic Engagement Framework for Nonprofits

Lee A. Swanson. Nonprofit Management and Leadership, volume 23, issue 3, pages 303- 323, Spring 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: Quantitative and qualitative analysis of research data collected over three years at a nonprofit public higher education institution and its community, along with a review of relevant literature, revealed the need for a new framework to guide economic and social value creation by utilizing the social capital held by nonprofit institutions. The study integrated research outcomes from the areas of social capital and institutional–stakeholder engagement to generate the new concept of strategic engagement management and a proposed Strategic Engagement Framework. This framework should help nonprofit organizations deploy their social capital for institutional and societal benefit by facilitating institutional–stakeholder collaboration. The study also tested the utility of implementing one component of the proposed framework: a structure for mapping, maintaining, and evaluating a portfolio of institutional engagement activities.”


Missing a strategic marketing trick? The use of online social networks by UK charities

Sarah Quinton and Paul Fennemore. International Journal of Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Marketing, volume 18, issue 1, pages 36-51, February 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: This paper explores the use of online social networks in the charity sector. Twelve major UK charities from a range of sectors and three digital marketing agencies were selected to provide rich interview data on the current adoption of online social networks by UK charities. The empirical findings illustrate the diverse drivers in adopting online social networks including regaining control of a brand, external pressures and gaining new audiences. Levels of usage differed significantly and the resistors consistently cited were the lack of skills and resources. The strategic marketing implications for the development of online social networks are also outlined for the UK charity market. The value provided by this paper stems from exploring the organisational perspective rather than the consumer experience of contributing to social networks, within a context which is often overlooked, the charity sector.”


Transferring social marketing knowledge through third sector CoPs

Fraser McLeay, Joanne Roberts and Vignesh Yoganathan. The Marketing Review, volume 12, issue 4, pages 381-401, winter 2012.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: “This paper investigates how knowledge of marketing techniques is acquired by third sector organisations (TSOs) through the activities of individuals who participate in various communities within a range of public and private organisations as well as TSOs. A Communities of Practice (CoP) framework is employed to investigate and develop an appreciation of the transfer of marketing knowledge within a case study community of TSOs. The findings suggest that community knowledge resources are enriched by the boundary spanning activities of dedicated facilitators and well-resourced members, who through engagement with external organisations acquire new knowledge and translate it into a form that can be transferred and absorbed by other community members. To our knowledge, no other papers published in the marketing literature have utilised the CoPs framework to illustrate the transfer of marketing knowledge in the third sector.”

Social innovation / Innovación social


Workplace Innovation in a Nonprofit Organization

Adela J. McMurray, Md. Mazharul Islam, James C. Sarros and Andrew Pirola-Merlo. Nonprofit Management and Leadership, volume 23, issue 3, pages 367-388, Spring 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: We examine the relationships among leadership, organizational climate, and workplace innovation in a nonprofit organization. We used established scales including the Transformational Leadership Scale, Organizational Climate Questionnaire, and Workplace Innovation Scale, and then descriptive statistics, regression models, and regression-based path analysis to fulfill the objectives of the study. The survey was administered to full-time and part-time employees in a religious-based nonprofit organization in Australia. A major finding is that leadership directly promotes workplace innovation and can foster a healthy climate, while the partial effect of organizational climate on workplace innovation, holding leadership constant, was insignificant. Certain characteristics of transformational leadership, transactional leadership, and organizational climate were predictive of workplace innovation as defined. The benefit of this study resides in its potential to look further into predictive leadership characteristics that would assist with recruitment processes in nonprofit organizations.”


Pour une nouvelle mondialisation. Le défi d'innover

Juan-Luis Klein et Matthieu Roy (dir). Presses de l'Université du Québec, Collection : Innovation sociale, 414 pages, janvier 2013.

Résumé issu de l’URL ci-haut : « Cet ouvrage, réunissant les principaux travaux présentés lors du 3colloque international tenu par le Centre de recherche sur les innovations sociales (CRISES) en avril 2011, vise à analyser les options sociales innovatrices par rapport au modèle néolibéral. Il situe les nouvelles formes d’action collective, et la créativité qui en résulte, puis il expose des exemples de réponses innovatrices à la crise dans des contextes sectoriels et territoriaux. Enfin, il pose les jalons d’un nouveau modèle de mondialisation construit autour des nouvelles exigences, valeurs et aspirations citoyennes. Le processus actuel de mondialisation, et les réactions qu’il entraîne, peuvent ainsi être vus comme une chance historique de conversion à un vivre-ensemble qui soit inclusif, solidaire et écologique. Aussi l’objectif de ce livre est-il de saisir le moment présent pour réaffirmer le rôle central que peut jouer la société civile dans cette transformation, tout en donnant à voir l’importance de construire une vision globale économique et politique. »


Challenge Social Innovation: Potentials for Business, Social Entrepreneurship, Welfare and Civil Society

Hans‐Werner Franz, Josef Hochgerner and Jürgen Howaldt. Springer editor, Berlin and Vienna, December 2012.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: In recent years, social innovation has experienced a steep career. Numerous national governments and large organisations like the OECD, the European Commission and UNESCO have adopted the term. Social innovation basically means that people adopt new social practices in order to meet social needs in a different or more effective way. Prominent examples of the past are the Red Cross and the social welfare state or, at present, the internet 2.0 transforming our communication and cooperation schemes, requiring new management concepts, even empowering social revolutions. The traditional concept of innovation as successful new technological products needs fundamental rethinking in a society marked by knowledge and services, leading to a new and enriched paradigm of innovation. There is multiple evidence that social innovation will become of growing importance not only concerning social integration, equal opportunities and dealing with the greenhouse effects but also with regard to preserving and expanding the innovative capacity of companies and societies. While political authorities stress the social facets of social innovation, this book also encompasses its societal and systemic dimensions, collecting the scientific expertise of renowned experts and scholars from all over the world. Based on the contributions of the first world-wide science convention on social innovation from September 2011 in Vienna, the book provides an overview of scientific approaches to this still relatively new field.”


L’innovation sociale en pratiques solidaires

Institut Jean-Baptiste Godin. Centre de transfert en pratiques solidaires, Amiens (France), 110 p, 2013.

http://www.institutgodin.fr/Is-InstitutGodin.pdf

Résumé issu de l’URL ci-haut : « Ces dernières décennies ont été le théâtre d’un engouement renouvelé pour l’innovation. […] Nous proposons ici d’opérer en deux temps, nous présenterons tout d’abord les éléments explicatifs de l’élargissement du concept d’innovation et tout particulièrement de l’innovation technologique vers l’innovation sociale, pour ensuite analyser les éléments de continuité et de rupture entre ces deux types d’innovation. »

Understanding the Role of Governments and Administrations in the Implementation of Community and Complementary Currencies

Jérôme Blanc and Marie Fare. Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics, volume 84, issue 1, pages 63-81, March 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: This text focuses on the role of governments and administrations in the emergence, spread, development and differentiation of community and complementary currency schemes (CCs), highlighting their role as potential support for experimentation. This support can take various forms: technical, financial, fiscal, official and/or legal recognition. We present first the role of governments, mostly local, in the emergence and development of four generations of CCs. We distinguish then a series of modes of action of governments at central and local levels. This leads to identify the interest of being supported (greater professionalism, greater complexity and possibly greater impact) while emphasizing the risks linked to public support as well.”

Social enterprise: New pathways to health and well-being?

Michael J. Roy, Cam Donaldson, Rachel Baker and Alan Kay. Journal of Public Health Policy, volume 34, issue 1, pages 55-68, March, 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: In this article we attempt to make sense of recent policy directions and controversies relating to the `social enterprise' and `health' interface. In doing so, we outline the unrecognised potential of social enterprise for generating health and well-being improvement, and the subsequent challenges for government, the sector itself, and for the research community. Although we focus primarily upon the UK policy landscape, the key message - that social enterprise could represent an innovative and sustainable public health intervention - is a useful contribution to the ongoing international debate on how best to address the challenge of persistent and widening health inequalities.


Entreprise sociale et insertion. Une perspective internationale

Laurent Gardin, Jean-Louis Laville et Marthe Nyssens (Dir). Édition Desclée de Brouwer, 336 pages, décembre 2012.

Résumé issu du l’URL ci-haut : « On ne parle aujourd'hui que d'intégration, d'insertion, en particulier pour certaines catégories sociales ou professionnelles comme les jeunes, les seniors, les salariés qui perdent leur emploi... A la fois capable d'exclure, le système économique est aussi une formidable machine à insérer, à réintégrer dans le tissu social, à travers de multiples mécanismes. Et pas nécessairement, sans doute, par le biais des entreprises traditionnelles. »

Civil Society Networks: Options for Network Design

Darcy Ashman and Carmen Luca Sugawara. Nonprofit Management and Leadership, volume 23, issue 3, pages 389-406, Spring 2013.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: “Civil society networks are critical actors in international development and social change, even as they are organizationally complex and challenging to design and manage. Network forms of organization may be “neither markets nor hierarchies,” but there is little shared understanding globally about the options that exist for designing interorganizational network structures or the conditions under which different options may be selected. This empirical study of thirty networks across eleven sectors and five global regions contributes a new conceptual framework for categorizing different types of network structures based on the level of interdependence among network members. Findings reveal three distinct network design options, indicate patterns of network development, and suggest several conditions that may influence the design of civil society networks.”


L’UCPA, entreprise associative sociale et solidaire

Guillaume Légaut. Article extrait de la revue Espaces, issue 310, 4 pages, janvier 2013.

Résumé issu du l’URL ci-haut : « L’union nationale des centres sportifs de plein air (UCPA) s’inscrit dans l’économie sociale et solidaire, tant par sa manière d’entreprendre que par sa finalité sociale. La crise économique et l’évolution de la société confrontent les acteurs de l’économie sociale et solidaire, et notamment ceux du secteur du tourisme, à des enjeux nouveaux. Ce contexte actuel met en lumière la portée sociétale de l’engagement de l’UCPA et la nécessité de trouver des réponses nouvelles, notamment au financement de son modèle économique. »
