Call for Papers - Strategies for Nonprofit Sustainability

 

Colleagues,

 

We are in the process of developing a special issue proposal on "Strategies for Nonprofit Sustainability" for submission to Voluntas (VHB: B), which has indicated interest in considering a full proposal on the topic in the case of the successful organization of a related panel at the 2018 ISTR Conference in Amsterdam. 

 

Thirteenth International Conference of the International Society for Third Sector Research (ISTR), Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, 10. July – 13. July 2018

 

Strategies for Nonprofit Sustainability

 

Suggested Co-Chairs: Matthias Georg Will, Vladislav Valentinov, Steffen Roth

 

 

Many nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations pursue missions that address the pressing problems of social and ecological sustainability. In doing so, these organizations often run up against the limits of their own economic sustainability. Scholars and practitioners become increasingly aware that noble missions alone do not guarantee organizational success. Nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations may fail to build sufficient resource base, to devise appropriate organizational structures, and to develop wise strategies of dealing with stakeholders (Bowman, 2011; Weerawardena et al., 2010; Hung and Ong, 2012). These and other possible organizational failures can be taken to be indicative of deficits in what some scholars have called “nonprofit sustainability” (Valentinov and Vacekova, 2015; Besel et al., 2011; Bell et al., 2011).

 

This session calls for contributions that tease out the theoretical content of the concept of nonprofit sustainability and/or present empirical evidence on how nonprofit organizations deal with their sustainability problems. The contributions may cut across a broad range of disciplinary fields such as economics, sociology, management, public administration, and ethics.

 

To begin with, many economic models of nonprofit organizations have been patterned on the contract-based theories of the firm (Thompson and Valentinov, 2017). We invite nonprofit scholars to come up instead with the theoretical equivalents of the resource-based theory that would draw attention to the importance of nonprofit resources, capabilities, routines, and learning processes. Each of these concepts challenges the well-known distinction between the demand-side and supply-side economic theories of the nonprofit sector.

 

Governance of resource dependencies and commercial activities in nonprofit organizations have long been in the focus of attention of sociologists and management scientists (Vacekova et al., 2016). This session would seek to figure out the effects of these and related phenomena on nonprofit sustainability which itself can be given divergent interpretations. For example, the concepts of the “ambidextrous organization” that combines exploratory and exploitative strategies (O’Reilly, 2013; Turner et al., 2013) is among many points of departure in devising the management strategies of sustainable nonprofit organizations, which may also include new fresh approaches to social entrepreneurship as well as beyond-profit “business” model development.

 

Of particular interest to public administration scholars would be the nonprofit sustainability implications of the salient phenomena such as inter-sectoral partnerships, coproduction (Brandsen and Honingh, 2016), new governance models, and the strategic navigation of inter-sectoral and inter-functional boundaries (Roth et al., 2017, Will et al., 2017). One of provocative issues is the possible tension between nonprofit identity and nonprofit sustainability, particularly if the latter is attained at the cost of commercialization, bureaucratization, and professionalization.

 

Finally, nonprofit sustainability can hardly be adequately conceptualized without an account of ethics which comprises not only the issues of good governance and accountability but also the moral basis of advocacy activities. Given the growing populist sentiments around the world, NGOs may come to be controlled by vested interests that are not interested in the genuine democratic discourses. As suggested by Will and Pies (2016), nonprofit advocacy cannot be deemed sustainable if it is complicit in discourse failures which obstruct rationale debate on pressing issues of economy, policy, and further so-far neglected key aspects of social life.

 

Please submit your abstracts of no more than 500 words incl. key references until October 21, 2017, to matthias.will(at)wiwi.uni-halle(dot)de . Please indicate in your submission whether you are planning to attend our panel at the ISTR Conference in Amsterdam and whether you would be interested to have your paper considered for the potential special issue of VOLUNTAS.

CBS - Start of a new multidisciplinary PhD cohort on “Multinational corporations in the age of anti-globalization”

 

Three departments at Copenhagen Business School (Business and Politics, International Economics and Management, and Strategic Management and Globalization) are jointly starting a new multidisciplinary PhD cohort on “Multinational corporations in the age of anti-globalization”. Compared to the 1980s, where MNCs flourished due to the neo-liberal turn that embraced globalization, and which did bring dynamism, wealth and leadership practices across the globe, the 2010s are characterized by increased skepticism towards globalization. This skepticism arises from increased inequality, but also technological innovation, whereby blue-collar workers are increasingly becoming redundant. It has for instance expressed itself in the populist revolt that underpinned the 2016 US presidential election and Brexit and it seems that the neoliberal order is now being reconfigured, with a greater focus on nationalism and national interests. There is also an increased focus on the behavior and strategies of MNCs. These issues are being addressed by governments, the EU and international organizations (IOs) such as the UN.  Thus, the aim of this PhD cohort is on the one hand, to focus on the current global challenges MNCs face, which types of strategies they adopt in response, and in what way they organize their activities, and on the other hand what the responses of IOs and governments are and what these response imply for the strategies of MNCs. Academic research on this question can generate new insights into the relationship between firm-level decision-making by MNCs, in relation to international organizations, the EU and governments and the increasingly anti-global environment they all operate in. We are advertising seven positions as part of the PhD cohort on ‘‘Multinational corporations (MNCs) in the age of anti-globalization”

 

Below is a list of the seven positions. Links to all of these positions, with details on how to apply are available here: www.cbs.dk/en/about-cbs/jobs-cbs/vacant-positions/phd-fellow. For queries please use the contact information stated for each of these positions. We note there is a need to submit a topic specific five page proposal with the application. There is a hard deadline of June 1st, 2017. After this date we will shortlist a small number of applications for each position for full consideration. The proposed starting date is September 1st, 2017.

 

1.      New forms of orchestration and organizing innovation in global value chains of MNCs.
2.      Politics and Policies of De-Globalization.
3.      The Possibilities and Limits of Corporate Responsibility: Corporate Power, Authority and Legitimacy in an Era of Anti-Globalization.
4.      International Business broadly.
5.      Local governments, global talent, and multinational firms: Winners and losers in the international competition for foreign direct investments.
6.      What Stays When Multinationals Leave? Resilience and Recovery Following the Closure of Subsidiaries of Multinational Corporations.
7.      Unconventional talent strategies in MNCs.
