SAMS, FGV EAESP Paper Development Workshop on NGOs and Management Studies

___________________________________________________________________________

 

 

 

Description

This workshop aims to shed light on the role of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in society, to examine the nature of management and organisational processes in these distinctive organisations, and to explore the implications of these for management studies. NGOs and other forms of not-for-profit organisation are important organisational forms but have been relegated to a relatively low level of attention in management studies (Barin Cruz, Alves and Delbridge, 2017) and there have been recent calls for the full range of organisations to feature more prominently in organisation and management studies (Parker, 2017). Non-profit organisations are a general category of organisation, they act upon a broad range of topics, varying from charity, education, health, emergencies, international aid and development of sustainability standards. Among those organisations, NGOs are the most prominent, their goals are both providing goods/services and advocating for causes. NGOs make a crucial contribution to society and the economy and constitute a distinctive organisational form within management is undertaken.
We aim with this workshop to bring scrutiny, problematisation and theorisation on the role of civil society organisation within our capitalist societies. We aim to explore, not limited to, the following topics:
• How NGOs’ activism influences the governance of sustainability, regarding its limits and shaping new paths;
• To whom NGOs are accountable; which mechanisms and strategies they employ to shape markets and governance mechanisms;
• How NGOs are exploring social media (e.g., Twitter) in their strategies;
• How specific ideas are spread around the world via NGOs' actions and campaigns;
• How the UN framework disseminates policies and practices;
• How NGOs shape and reinforce neoliberalism;
• How management practices in NGOs compare to those in other organisational forms.
