Nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations of the 21st century operate within a dynamic and fluid landscape brought about by globalization, shifting market forces, increased economic turbulence, and fluctuating government priorities. Although scholars pay a great deal of attention to adaptations in internal organizational structures and processes resulting from environmental shifts, insufficient attention has been paid to governance models that might advance our understanding of the place of third sector organizations within traditional and emerging theories of both public administration and organization theory.
The aim of this special issue is to focus attention on theoretical understandings of third sector organizations within existing and alternative frameworks of public administration and organization theory. Potential contributors are encouraged to propose papers that critically examine existing governance models, looking towards rethinking the place of nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations within traditional and modern understandings of administrative and organizational thought.
