The Governance of Public and Non-Profit Organizations

Editor(s): Chris Cornforth

Date: 2011

Publisher: Routledge

Price: 0 €(+ mailing costs)

Order contact: Hardcopy not available

Governing boards play a crucial role in ensuring that public and non-profit organizations are publicly accountable and perform well.

Using a new theoretical framework that highlights the paradoxical nature of governance, the book throws light on the questions at the heart of recent debates about non-profit boards:

  • are boards publicly accountable or is there a democratic deficit?
  • are boards able to exercise real power, or does management run the show?
  • are boards effective stewards of an organization's resources?
  • what effects are regulatory and other changes designed to improve board effectiveness having?
