Nonprofit Governance: Innovative Perspectives and Approaches

Cornforth, Chris and Brown, William A. eds. (2013). Nonprofit Governance: Innovative Perspectives and Approaches. Routledge Contemporary Corporate Governance Series. Abingdon: Routledge.



This collection offers a comprehensive assessment of research on the governance of nonprofit organizations. Nonprofit governance research has been dominated by the study of boards of unitary organizations and has paid insufficient attention to the multi-level nature of governance, governance relationships and dynamics, and the contribution of actors other than board members, to governance processes.

Drawing on the research of leading scholars in the US, UK, Canada and Australia, this book presents new perspectives on non-profit governance, which help to overcome these weaknesses. Written in an accessible manner the book will be of value to scholars, researchers, students, reflective practitioners and governance consultants and advisers.
