Eighteenth Annual Conference of the International Research Society for Public Management (IRSPM)

Intersections: Governance, Democracy, Accountability

April 9-11, 2014 – Ottawa, Canada


Third Sector Group


Deadline for abstracts: October 1, 2013


The third sector panel at the IRSPM conference discusses research at the intersection of third sector and public management scholarship. Questions that could be addressed by panellists include:


• How have the purpose, design, implementation, and outcomes of third sector – state partnerships developed over time?

• What governance and other conditions encourage or discourage successful partnerships and innovation throughout the sector?

• Have recent developments affected the sustainability of collaborative activities involving state and third sector organizations?

• Can we identify distinctive local and national patterns concerning the development of partnerships and their impact on innovation?

• How are public-third sector partnerships branded and marketed?

• What are the human resource management implications of these partnerships?


We are interested in both theoretical and empirical papers that have implications for the management and governance of third sector organizations. Papers that are applicable across geographic boundaries are of particular interest.
