Journeys and Destinations: Using Longitudinal Analysis to Explore How Third Sector Organisational Governance Helps to Navigate Sustainable Futures

Tony Chapman. Voluntary Sector Review, volume 8, issue 1, pages 3-24, March 2017.

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: Since the economic downturn, the third sector in the UK has been put under pressure financially. Many snapshot studies of the sector as a whole and its component parts have concluded that the problems that third sector organisations have are due largely to financial pressures. This article challenges such assumptions by focusing on organisational governance. Drawing on longitudinal evidence from the Northern Rock Foundation's Third Sector Trends Study in North East England and Cumbria, which ran from 2008 to 2015, it is shown that focusing too much on organisational income, as a proxy for success, skews understanding of how 'well-governed' third sector organisations operate. The article presents a new methodology and analytical approach to make informed judgements, drawing on longitudinal qualitative and quantitative data – about organisational foresight, enterprise, capability and impact – in order to get a better understanding of the relationship between governance, organisational sustainability and success.”

Les auteurs s’attachent à décrire la genèse, la transformation et les formes de développement sur le long terme du crédit coopératif agricole. L’article montre les lignes de force et les mécanismes de ce dernier, en mettant l’accent sur ses interactions avec le marché et l’Etat. »

 

The Role of Community in Crowdfunding Success: Evidence on Cultural Attributes in Funding Campaigns to “Save the Local Theater”

Matthew Josefy, Thomas J. Dean, Lumina S. Albert and Markus A. Fitza. Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, volume 41, Issue 2, pages 161 - 182, March 2017.

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/etap.
12263/abstract?campaign=woletoc

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: Despite increased interest in examining the factors that influence crowdfunding success, the effects of community context have been relatively unexamined. We address this void by examining the role of cultural context in crowdfunding success. Our unique data set of crowdfunding projects to “save the local theater” are homogenous in their goal, allowing us to test whether crowdfunding campaigns in certain communities lead to better funding outcomes than others. Theoretically, our results suggest the need for further integration of community and cultural constructs into models of venture funding, as such variables may have more relevance than previously believed.”

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: Le Maroc comme beaucoup de pays en développement souffrent des conséquences de la mondialisation. Il connaissait des déficits sociaux et des mutations qui affectaient plusieurs secteurs d’activités ce qui les rend fragiles. Conscient à ces enjeux les pouvoirs publics marocains ont entrepris des mesures afin de renforcer et mettre à niveau les secteurs ayant souffert des répercussions de la concurrence et de mobiliser l’action sociale pour lutter contre la précarité et la pauvreté. Parmi ces mesures, la mise en place du réseau de l’économie sociale qui a été appuyée par l’Initiative Nationale du Développement Humain, lancée par Sa Majesté le Roi Mohammed VI le 18 Mai 2005. La coopérative constitue la colonne vertébrale de l’économie sociale et solidaire. Elle a pour objectif de soutenir ses adhérents et d’améliorer leur situation socioéconomique. L’objet de cet article est de déterminer le rôle des coopératives dans le développement durable. Nous avons tenté dans un premier temps d’aborder les caractéristiques des coopératives ensuite nous avons montré que les coopératives intègrent dans leur gestion des objectifs multiples d’ordre économique, social et écologique. Enfin, nous avons mis l’accent sur l’état des lieux des coopératives marocaines et leurs performances. »

Service Delivery Under Translation: Multi‐stakeholder Accountability in the Non‐profit Community Sector in New Zealand

Bronwyn Boon, Richard Greatbanks, Jenny Munro and Michael Gaffney. Health & Social Care in the Community, volume 25, issue 2, pages 402 - 413, March 2017.

http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/bsc/hscc
/2017/00000025/00000002/art00011

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: This paper addresses the challenge reported in the research literature of providing adequate accounts of service quality and value to multiple stakeholders. Rather than starting with a particular accountability practice, we examine the accounts of complex service delivery and results from the perspective of five key stakeholder groups. The case study at the empirical centre of this research is a small New Zealand nonprofit organisation that provides communitybased wraparound casework to young people, and their families, with multiple and complex needs. This paper reports on data collected during 2009–2012 through interviews with five key stakeholders of this service: the young people, the caseworkers, the coproviders, the managers and the funders. Drawing on translation theory, the different points of reference and the consequential shifts in focus, content and meaning within the multiple stakeholder accounts are traced. The findings show that while each stakeholder group brings a unique point of reference to the service delivery, there are degrees of overlap in the focus and content of the accounts. This is particularly evident in the ‘relationship’ dimension. While overlaps may exist, points of invisibility are also revealed. Accountability tensions can be traced directly to these points of invisibility. As a result of this analysis, it is argued that more explicit attention to the impact of multiple stakeholders at the level of epistemology provides a mechanism for addressing some of the tensions routinely raised.”

Analyzing External Environment Factors Affecting Social Enterprise Development

Michelle Medina Munro and Charles Belanger. Social Enterprise Journal, volume 13, issue 1, pages 38 - 52, March 2017.

http://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/full/10
.1108/SEJ-06-2016-0021

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: The purpose of this paper is to analyze how factors in the external environment affect social enterprise (SE) development in Canada. With the decline in government funding for non-profit organizations, SE development is gaining greater traction. SEs are businesses and can be analyzed with methods similar to those for traditional businesses. Just as the external environment is important for assessing the success of businesses, in this study, the authors examine the external environment related to SEs. In this statistical analysis, the authors compared 62 factors across 33 census metropolitan areas (CMAs) in Canada while treating SE revenue as the dependent variable. Links between the dependent variable and the external environment were analyzed through correlation and regression tests. Publicly available revenue figures for non-profit SEs by CMAs were compared with a selection of external environment factors, including demographic information and health indicators, also organized by CMA, as published by Statistics Canada. The analysis demonstrated that three of the factors displayed significant positive correlation and one resulted in a predictive value. Positive correlations were discovered between SE revenue per capita and three of the variables: university education, perceived health, very good or excellent and no religious affiliation. Only university education was found to have predictive value. This study is the first to compare SE revenue and the external environment across Canada’s CMAs. The results show that factors in the external environment create conditions more conducive to SE development.”

 

La finalité des coopératives bancaires : un avantage pour attirer de futurs diplômés

Marie-Claude Beaudin et Michel Séguin. Revue international de l’économie sociale (RECMA), numéro 343, mars 2017.

http://recma.org/article/la-finalite-des-cooperatives-bancaires
-un-avantage-pour-attirer-de-futurs-diplomes

Résumé issue du l’URL ci-haut : « En tant que coopérative, la coopérative financière a comme finalité de satisfaire au maximum ses membres-clients alors que l’entreprise classique vise la maximisation des bénéfices. Les candidats disponibles sur le marché de l’emploi sont-ils sensibles à la finalité poursuivie par les entreprises lorsqu’ils décident de poser leur candidature ? Le cas échéant, est-ce que la satisfaction de la clientèle est une finalité plus attractive que la maximisation des bénéfices ? Cet article présente les résultats d’une étude  effectuée auprès d’étudiants d’une école de commerce. Les résultats confirment l’hypothèse que la finalité de l’entreprise influence l’attractivité organisationnelle et que la finalité coopérative est plus attractive que celle d’une banque traditionnelle. »

 

Shared Leadership: Research and Implications for Nonprofit Leadership, Capacity Building, and Education

Max Freund. Journal of Nonprofit Education and Leadership, volume 7, issue 1, pages, January 2017.

http://js.sagamorepub.com/jnel/article/view/8022

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: “As organizational management becomes more complex, shared leadership represents a promising practice for enabling greater adaptability, leadership development, and stakeholder engagement. This emerging view of leadership provides a counterpoint to traditional “heroic” models of leadership by recognizing team members’ exercise of mutual influence toward achieving group and organizational goals. This article seeks to clarify some definitional confusion and provides a brief summary of findings from empirical research literature regarding antecedents, mediating processes, and contingency factors. To integrate the research and make it more actionable, a number of key enabling conditions for shared leadership are proposed including supportive environmental factors (mindsets and cultures, practices and processes, and roles and structure) that can promote an enabling climate of psychological empowerment, trust and safety, and common purpose. Strategies are recommended for nonprofit leaders and capacity builders to build shared leadership and for nonprofit management educators to incorporate these themes into their teaching.”

Social Innovation Practices in the Regional Tourism Industry: Case Study of a Cooperative in Brazil

Carlos Quandt, Alex Ferraresi, Claudineia Kudlawicz, Janaína Martins and Ariane Machado. Social Enterprise Journal, volume 13, issue 1, pages 78=94, March 2017.

http://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/full/10.1108/SEJ-12-2015-0038

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: This paper aims to analyze the main elements of the process of social innovation by using a case of a tourism cooperative created by an underprivileged community in Northeastern Brazil while assessing the applicability of the conceptual framework proposed by Centre de Recherche sur les Innovations Sociales (CRISES) in that context. The case study was based mainly on content analysis of semi-structured interviews with cooperative managers and members, complemented by direct observation, analysis of documents and data from secondary sources. The process of social innovation in the tourism cooperative presents distinctive characteristics that are not adequately captured by the dimensions that are proposed in the CRISES framework. Alternative frameworks may contribute additional perspectives to complement and expand the current approach to the analysis of social innovation in diverse contexts. The study indicates the need for more appropriate territorially based metrics and assessment models for particular configurations and settings of social innovation, such as in this case. The paper contributes to a better understanding of the diversity of social innovation possibilities and how extant analytical frameworks may be adapted and expanded to capture such diversity.”

Situating a Public Funding Experiment within the Landscape of Political Ideas About the Non-profit Sector

Karine Levasseur and Sid Frankel. Voluntary Sector Review, volume 8, issue 1, pages 67 - 88, March 2017.

http://www.ingentaconnect.com/contentone/tpp
/vsr/2017/00000008/00000001/art00004

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: This article examines a recent funding experiment in one sub-national jurisdiction in Canada. Implemented as a two-year pilot project, this experiment included multi-year funding to non-profit organisations, a single window application portal and rationalisation of reporting requirements when multiple departmental funders are present. To understand the experiment, we situate it in the context of seminal political ideas about the non-profit sector. We assess whether it is a movement away from new public management (NPM) or an adoption of the marketisation of public services and use of the non-profit sector as an instrument to reverse civic decline of third-way politics or if it represents increased collaborative governance practices. We argue that while this represents a meaningful departure from NPM, it is only a partial reflection of third-way and collaborative governance as well as a pragmatic response to situational factors.”

 

Leveraging Nonprofit and Voluntary Action Research to Inform Public Policy

Brenda K. Bushouse. Policy Studies Journal, volume 45, issue 1, pages 50-70, February 2017.

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/psj.12195/full

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: The field of nonprofit and voluntary action (NVA) studies in the United States originates in the 1970s and has since grown to encompass multiple scholarly associations around the world and graduate degree programs producing faculty with NVA as their primary scholarly focus. This article introduces readers to the NVA field by describing the development of the field, its scholarly associations and publication venues, and education programs. The second section discusses three areas of foundational research: why nonprofit organizations exist, why people give, and nonprofit relations with government. Each of these areas can be drawn upon by public policy scholars to more fully understand how individuals and nonprofit organizations participate in the policy process. The final section identifies three nexuses with policy process: policy design, advocacy, and the role of foundations. These are three areas that have significant potential for research collaborations to connect NVA with policy process literature.”

 

 


 

 

Third Sector Independence: Relations with the State in an Age of Austerity

Valérie Egdell and Matthew Dutton. Voluntary Sector Review, volume 8, issue 1, pages 25 – 40, March 2017.

http://www.ingentaconnect.com/contentone/tpp/
vsr/2017/00000008/00000001/art00002

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: Third sector organisations deliver a range of public services for government. They are valued and trusted by commissioners, clients and wider society because of their independence. However, the extent to which the third sector is independent is questioned. Drawing on qualitative longitudinal research with third sector organisations in Scotland, this article explores how third sector organisations delivering public services manage the demands of changing funding structures and relationships with government, and the implications for their independence. It explores how organisations understand and negotiate the tension between their independence and mission driven social action, and delivering commissioned and contracted public services. In doing so, it highlights the challenges to independence in a dynamically changing political, policy and financial climate, as well as opportunities for organisations to emphasise their distinctive contribution to public service delivery.”

 

Nonprofits as Advocates and Providers: A Conceptual Framework

Rachel Fyall. Policy Studies Journal, volume 45, issue 1, pages 121-143, February 2017.

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/psj.12165/full

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: While nonprofit organizations are frequently understood as influencing policy through advocacy, the policy influence of nonprofit service provision has not been widely acknowledged within the context of the policy process. In spite of this oversight, nonprofit organizations have significant discretion over the publicly funded services they provide, and public policy is continuously shaped through nonprofit service delivery. Furthermore, nonprofit organizations frequently embody the roles of interest group and policy implementer simultaneously. The advocate-provider framework presented here situates these concurrent nonprofit functions within the policy process context. This framework connects research and theory across policy process, public management, and nonprofit management scholarship. The advocate-provider perspective challenges assumptions from existing scholarship while highlighting the need for future research that jointly investigates nonprofit advocacy, public service provision, and policy processes.”

The Oxford Handbook of Mutual, Co-Operative, and Co-Owned Business

Jonathan Michie, Joseph R. Blasi and Carlo Borzaga. Exford University Press. 704 pages, March 2017.

https://global.oup.com/academic/product/the-oxford-
handbook-of-mutual-co-operative-and-co-owned-business
-9780199684977?cc=de&lang=en&

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: The Oxford Handbook of Mutuals and Co-Owned Business investigates all types of 'member owned' organizations, whether consumer co-operatives, agricultural and producer co-operatives, worker co-operatives, mutual building societies, friendly societies, credit unions, solidarity organizations, mutual insurance companies, or employee-owned companies. Such organizations can be owned by their consumers, the producers, or the employees - whether through single-stakeholder or multi-stakeholder ownership.  This complex set of organizations is named differently across countries: from 'mutual' in the UK, to 'solidarity cooperatives' in Latin America. In some countries, such organizations are not even officially recognized and thus lack a specific denomination. For the sake of clarity, this Handbook will refer to member-owned organizations to encompass the variety of non-investor-owned organizations, and in the national case study chapters the terms used will be those most widely employed in that country. These alternative corporate forms have emerged in a variety of economic sectors in almost all advanced economies since the time of the industrial revolution and the development of capitalism, through the subsequent creation and dominance of the limited liability company. Until recently, these organizations were generally regarded as a rather marginal component of the economy. However, over the past few years, member-owned organizations have come to be seen in some countries, at least, as potentially attractive in light of their ability to tackle various economic and social concerns, and their relative resilience during the financial and economic crises of 2007-2013.

 

 


 

 

Social and Solidarity Economics in India and Brazil

Leandro Pereira Morais, Anup Dash, and Miguel Juan Bacic. Social Enterprise Journal, volume 13, issue 1, pages 95-112, March 2017.

http://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/full/10.1108/SEJ-07-2016-0035

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: The purpose of this paper is to present the policies in the field of social and solidarity economics (SSE) in India and in Brazil, to draw a comparison between them and to present their strengths and weaknesses. This proposal is based on the innovative initiative of an ongoing collaboration between India and Brazil in the field of SSE within the South-South Triangular Cooperation framework of the International Labor Organization. The methodological procedures used for the elaboration of this article were: literature review in both countries and field trips to India and Brazil. The study helped us understand the realities of SSE in both countries. The importance of SSE can be observed as a means to deal with poverty and the need to generate income for portions of the population, in spite of the historic, cultural, political, economic and social differences. The Indian experience contributes to the theme of the insertion of women in the mechanisms of generation of work positions and income opportunities, whereas the Brazilian experience contributes to the topic of social cooperativism. Despite the contributions of SSE to mitigate poverty and income deficiency, considering a significant share of the poor, particularly in India, the mechanisms for inclusion of this population are limited. A similar situation, however, to a lesser degree can also be observed in Brazil. This study is an input for the elaboration of public policies of SSE, including the advantages of its transversality. Besides, it will also help in the analysis and elaboration of social policies from an integrated and emancipatory view. Within the international context, the authors understand that this was the first comparative study on the topic of SSE, undertaken between Brazil and India”

L’émergence du marché des consultants associatifs: le dispositif local d’accompagnement, un « plan Marshall associatif » ?

Résumé issue du l’URL ci-haut : « Le recours aux consultants n’est pas une pratique nouvelle dans le monde associatif, son développement dans le secteur est indiscutable ces dix dernières années. L’auteur montre dans cet article que l’émergence d’un marché du conseil associatif ne résulte pas d’un effet de mode, mais celui d’une impulsion publique, qui s’inscrit elle-même dans une histoire plus longue. L’auteur rappelle que l’action publique a indéniablement favorisé l’émergence du marché des consultants. Il explique ensuite que le dispositif local d’accompagnement (DLA), en tant que politique publique, a joué le rôle d’un petit « plan Marshall associatif » structurant un marché du consulting spécifique à ce secteur. »

 

Social Entrepreneurship Research in Asia-Pacific: Perspectives and Opportunities

Subhanjan Sengupta and Arunaditya Sahay. Social Enterprise Journal, volume 13, issue 1, pages 17-37, March 2017.

http://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/full/10.1108/SEJ-11-2016-0050

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: This paper aims to facilitate researchers, academicians and entrepreneurs gain insights on the social entrepreneurship concept and future research opportunities in the context of the Asia-Pacific countries (APAC).The diversity of social entrepreneurship phenomenon visible in 101 journal publications was reviewed and analyzed to identify research perspectives and opportunities, with special focus on papers published on the APAC context between 1998 and 2015. The keywords for search were “social entrepreneurship”, “social enterprises”, “social entrepreneur” and the names of all countries in APAC. The study identifies three prominent themes in need of more research in the APAC countries: contextual, institutional and personal factors surrounding social entrepreneurship; usage of market orientation by social enterprises to generate economic and social value; and impact of social entrepreneurship education on generating talent pool for social enterprises. During the review on the social entrepreneurship concept, it was felt that most research originated from both sides of the Atlantic rather than the APAC. Interestingly, no review was found on research published on social entrepreneurship as perceived and practiced in APAC. Therefore, this paper would be of particular value to any researcher who would conduct social entrepreneurship research in the Asia-Pacific context. Asia-Pacific offers immense scope for empirical research for theory generation and theory testing in different contexts.”

 

Social Economy in Post-communist Romania: What Kind of Volunteering for What Type of NGOs?

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: This article analyses the social economy from the perspective of NGOs and voluntary work. The research was conducted on four different territorial levels in the Western Region of Romania and employed both quantitative (questionnaires administered to the general population and within NGOs, bivariate analyses) and qualitative (semi-structured interviews within NGOs) methods of analysis. This method of working has allowed a picture of NGOs and volunteering to be formed that is correlated with territorial realities in the western part of Romania. It has thus been possible to see what underlies the coming into existence of NGOs, their economic scale, and what areas they succeed in addressing. Secondly, a description is provided of the typical Western Region volunteer, focusing mainly on social and motivational aspects.”

 

Universities and Third Sector Working in Partnership to Co-deliver Accredited, Community Mental Health Training

Mark Richardson, Owain Jones, Carolyn Wallace, Sheree Williams. Widening Participation and Lifelong Learning, volume 19, issue 1, pages 77 - 94, March 2017.

http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/openu/jwpll
/2017/00000019/00000001/art00005

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: “Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training package, originally designed for tackling stigma and for promoting awareness of mental health across communities. Despite the international popularity of the programme, charges for delivery in Wales of what is otherwise an education programme means the MHFA (Wales) is often an option only to those working in organisations or those who can pay. This seems to defeat the original vision of Mental Health First Aid Australia of "a community where everyone has the first aid skills to support people with mental health problems" (Mental Health First Aid Foundation, Australia 2015). Recognising this as a widening participation (WP) issue, the University of South Wales (USW) along with its outreach initiative the University Heads of the Valleys (UHOVI) and third sector partner, Training in Mind (TiM), developed the first ever level four accredited version of the MHFA (Wales). The five credit module, through a bursary offered by UHOVI, now offers funded opportunities for local community participants who are living in what are otherwise termed 'hard-to-reach' areas, to access the training. The training is delivered exclusively through TiM where access to the MHFA (Wales) training remains committed to tackling stigma, discrimination as well as helping to build community resilience – while equally supporting wider knowledge of community widening participation in learning.”

Research Shows Demographics, Staffing Challenges Loom for Nonprofits

challenges-loom-for-nonprofits.aspx

Abstract excerpted from the URL cited above: “After years of research showing the need for additional investment in technology, staffing and strategic planning, the nation’s nonprofits have made strides in these areas that experts say are critical to successful fundraising. Unfortunately, new challenges have arisen—including demographics and job churn—that are hampering charities’ abilities to fundraise, providing an opening for corporate donors interested in helping their nonprofit partners build capacity and sustainable long-term growth. According to research by SEI Inc., an investment management firm, most nonprofits have invested in resources, technology and culture to support fundraising success; spend enough on advertising and awareness campaigns; and have sufficient staff dedicated to fundraising efforts.”
