The Third Sector - broadly defined as the voluntary, charitable, co-operative, religious, health and educational organisations which sit outside the confines of the private (‘profit’) and public sectors - is facing a rapidly changing environment which challenges its efficient management and continuation. This research workshop seeks to examine current influences on the effective operation of these nonprofit organisations (NPOs). We are interested in high-quality research papers which address the managerial challenges facing this sector. The organisers are particularly interested in the results of managerial, economic and inter-disciplinary approaches.
This workshop will be of interest not only to researchers active in this area, but also to policy-makers, senior managers and practitioners from all disciplines.
The purpose of the workshop ‘The challenges of managing the third sector’ is to present and discuss in a stimulating academic environment high-quality research papers exploring contemporary challenges in managing all kinds of nonprofit organisations (NPOs).
Topics of potential interest include, but are not limited to:
There are no particular paper requirements, but they should not be too long (preferably 8,000 words).
Submission of full papers: 3 March 2017
A selection of the best papers will be eligible for submission either to a special issue of the Accounting, Finance & Governance Review (editors Noel Hyndman, Bernd Helmig and Marc Jegers); or a book of readings (from a major publisher) on public policy towards NPOs (edited by Irvine Lapsley). Participants who are interested in the possibility of contributing a book chapter are invited to contact Irvine.Lapsley@ed.ac.uk before the workshop. More information will be offered during the workshop.
