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.

Senior Citizens Clubs stellen eine transnationale Form von Freizeitorganisationen für ältere Menschen dar. Als teilnehmende Beobachterin verbrachte Carolin Oppermann mehrere Monate in zwei Clubs in Kuala Lumpur und hat mit den Senioren getanzt, gesungen, gekocht, gemanagt, organisiert, gelernt, entspannt und diskutiert. Ihre Analyse zeigt, wie diese älteren Menschen ihre Clubs formen - wie sie Mitgliedschaften inszenieren, Entscheidungen treffen, die Finanzierung sichern, Ordnungen immer wieder aushandeln und die Clubs mit Bedeutung versehen. Die Ethnographie bietet neue und unmittelbare Einblicke in die organisierte Freizeitgestaltung älterer Menschen.

Soziale Investitionen bezeichnen unterschiedliche Formen privater Beiträge zum Gemeinwohl. Was jedoch als Beitrag zum Gemeinwohl verstanden werden kann, unterliegt dem Diskurs in Zivilgesellschaft und politischer Öffentlichkeit. Aus der Perspektive wirtschafts- und sozialwissenschaftlicher Disziplinen prüfen die Forscher des Heidelberger Centrums für Soziale Investitionen und Innovationen den Erklärungsgehalt dieses neuen forschungsleitenden Konzepts Sozialer Investition. Das Konzept beansprucht die prinzipielle Vergleichbarkeit unterschiedlicher Beiträge zum Gemeinwohl, wie die Arbeit von Stiftungen, Spenden, freiwilliges bürgerschaftliches Engagement und Sozialunternehmertum.

Social housing has long been delivered through mixed economy mechanisms, but there has been little focus in housing studies on what this means for housing organisations themselves. This book presents recent international research applying concepts of social enterprise and hybridity to illuminate organisational behaviour in the housing sector. It addresses critiques of the explanatory value of these concepts by exploring their underlying meanings and their application to diverse case studies worldwide. The concepts are found to be most useful where they inform dynamic analysis of hybridisation and identify underlying change mechanisms, rather than simply providing static descriptions of hybridity. Various chapters in the book show how analysis can be enriched by drawing on institutional theory to develop concepts such as competing organisational logics, trade-offs between social and commercial goals and resource transfers. The Book also looks at policy as a driver for hybridisation and to the regulatory challenges for policy systems that have come to rely on hybrid forms of delivery. A research agenda is proposed building on these conceptual frameworks to develop systematic approaches to data collection and analysis to enable clearer and more consistent meanings to emerge. This book was published as a special issue of Housing Studies.

Few policies have had a more profound impact on the modern British housing system than the wholesale transfer of public housing to new social landlords. In the past two decades over a million homes have passed from council ownership to housing associations, and the management of another million has been outsourced by local authorities. After Council Housing provides a compelling account of its causes, methods and consequences. Rejecting the claim that the process of stock transfer is a simple case of damaging privatization, the authors argue instead that Britain’s new social landlords have contributed to a more business-like, consumer-focused and tenant-influenced social housing sector.
