Social enterprises : an organizational perspective( )

15 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social enterprises have been a growing phenomenon around the world in the past decade. The authors of this volume argue that they represent a unique type of organization. By combining social goals with a business orientation, both critical for their mission and survival, they represent a breed of organization with two kinds of logic that in the past were not perceived as belonging under the same organizational roof. The business logic, with its focus on competition and private ownership, did not seem a fitting context in which to deal with social issues or problems. These are traditionally dealt with by a service logic that emphasizes a charitable, empathetic orientation. Putting these two orientations together calls for creative organizational solutions, especially if these organizations are to be stable and sustainable. Social Enterprises presents a first attempt to do that. An organizational perspective of social enterprises allows us to analyze issues such as their governing structure, their modes of operation and their marketing strategies, and begins to formulate some theoretical constructs on how these entities can survive and thrive. This volume provides not only a theoretical and empirical basis to examine these issues, but an international perspective as well
Government and the third sector : emerging relationships in welfare states( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In ten chapters written expressly for this book, international experts in economics, political science, sociology, and social welfare examine the position of the third sector vis-a-vis government in European countries and Israel, revealing the growing interdependence of the public and voluntary sectors. The conventional wisdom assumes a basic conflict between the voluntary sector and the state. The authors of this volume show that, far from competing with government, nonprofit organizations provide an alternative set of mechanisms through which to deliver publicly financed services. In many countries, for example, partnerships between local government and voluntary organizations are thriving. The authors put the current debate over the relative roles of government and the nonprofit sector into perspective by examining how the relationship between them has developed; evaluate the possibilities for cooperation between nonprofits and the state in coping with current social needs; assess the extent to which nonprofit organizations can assume new burdens; and explore, in different national settings, the evolving relationship between the nonprofit sector and the state, which has come to be a central issue in the political discourse of our day
The Israeli third sector : between welfare state and civil society by Benjamin Gidron( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book presents the economic, historical, legal and policy dimensions of the Sector with a focus on its contribution to the Welfare State and civil society. It then analyzes those findings in the context of major theoretical frameworks of the sector. While Israel shares certain similarities with other countries, its history, demography, and politics have created unique features that make it impossible to fit the country into existing Third Sector theories, which are presented in this seminal reading for the global discussion on nonprofit theory. Furthermore, that analysis, with the focus on the Third Sector in the context of society is also providing a new lens through which to analyze contemporary Israeli society
