9780230234642: Hybrid Organizations and the Third Sector: Challenges for Practice, Theory and Policy

This crisp edited volume provides a useful addition to the growing, albeit still limited, literature on the critical analysis of hybrid forms of third sector organisations in the United Kingdom and elsewhere, and the challenges these organisations face in the delivery of welfare services as a result of their hybridity. This book also serves, according to the editor, to mark the 30th anniversary of the establishment of research and teaching on the voluntary/third sector at the Centre for Civil Society, London School of Economics.' - Dr. Celine Chew, Voluntary Sector Review.

'This is an excellent book. The chapters are tight, well written, and substantial.... The contributors are literally some of the rock stars of the world of nonprofit scholarship... anyone with an interest in nonprofit organizations, the third sector or social policy should want this book. It ought to be required reading for nonprofit academic programs everywhere.' - Voluntas

'David Billis's scholarly contributions mark the history of nonprofit studies in the United Kingdom, and his contributions are of global importance ... [he] offers a new theory on hybrid organizations illuminated through a series of cases in this well-curated and timely volume... the true strength of this timely volume [is] its import for academics, practitioners, students, policy makers, funders, and students of Third Sector Organizations, sectoral boundaries, and hybrids alike. We now have a clearer lexicon and a clearer analytic framework to guide our exploration. ... highly relevant for those in practice, policy, and academic settings' - Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly

'a valuable addition to reading lists for all those interested in third sector scholarship' - Social Policy & Administration

'...this book has much to say that is of relevance to those engaged with, or interested in, the third sector− Firstly at the theoretical level there is sound analysis and in the final chapter Billis begins to set out a research agenda to take forward some of the issues raised. Secondly, those engaged with the third sector will recognise the issues and dilemmas they experience daily, consciously or otherwise, in their practice. Lastly, this title is to be recommended to those involved in policy-making.' - Journal of Social Policy

'For a course in international business, organizational theory/ behavior with an international element, international social enterprise, or an entrepreneurship course with an international element, Hybrid Organizations brings significant value... The reader can draw principles for volunteer management, organizational governance, and interface with governmental agencies. And the implications and questions Billis draws in his concluding chapter provide significant food for planning and action. It is a seminal work providing impetus for research about and refining practice in hybrid third sector organizations. .. a remarkable piece of research.' - The Journal of Biblical Integration in Business

From the Back Cover:


Welfare has always been provided by 'public', 'voluntary' and 'private' sector organizations. But do these terms have any meaning in a contemporary welfare landscape where organizations can possess significant characteristics of more than one sector? Is this hybridity now eroding the unique qualities of the different sectors?

This book explores these questions, and more, through the lens of a new theory of hybrid organizations – tested and developed in the context of a range of case studies. In detail, it:
? Develops the first theory of hybrid organizations to discuss the future of the third sector
? Presents an original analysis of the consequences of hybridity
? Provides readers with useable ideas to address practical issues of accountability and change

Hybrid Organizations and the Third Sector offers an agenda-setting analysis for all those interested in the future of the third sector, the rise of hybridity in the public sector and the study of organizations.
