Alors qu’une logique de marché et donc de concurrence commence à gagner le tiers secteur, il s’agit de développer de nouvelles manières d’interagir avec des partenaires aux visions partiellement divergentes. Nous suggérons ici que de telles collaborations vont au-delà des définitions formelles et requièrent la construction d’une compréhension commu...

Dieser Beitrag führt die Begriffe der Sinnfindung, Sinngebung und Sinnwelt ein und schlägt vor, dass damit das starre Denken in Sektorengrenzen ergänzt oder gar ersetzt werden kann. Das Verständnis von sektorenübergreifenden Netzwerken, Zusammenschlüssen oder Projekten wird über gemeinsame Sinnfindungsprozesse beschrieben. Daraus lassen sich konkre...

Réflexion sur les contributions et les défis de la nébuleuse de l'ESS à partir d'une étude empirique vaudoise (Suisse)

While health technology has shown constant improvements in industrialized countries, developing countries have not been able to take full advantage of this evolution, partly because of unstable power supplies. According to a World Health Organization study, grid failures are responsible for one-third of medical device breakdowns. Therefore, the glo...
Article
Many answers have been given to the question 'Why do organizational members behave unethically?' Each answer has induced its own set of solutions to tackle unethical behavior. Among others, two streams focus on the individual actor by either proposing control and sanction mechanisms to frame the manager’s self-interested attitude or by aiming at ed...

Die Debatte über die idealen Beziehungen zwischen Wirtschaft und Sozialwesen, ist zu begrüßen. Gleichzeitig ist die angesprochene Vielfalt nicht unproblematisch. Die verschiedenen Verständnisse von Sozialmanagement und die unterschiedlichen Wirkungszieldefinitionen und –messmethoden können für Spannungen sorgen, die für das gesamte Feld des Sozialw...
Article
Smith defines the business enterprise primarily as the endeavor of an individual who remains fully embedded in the broader society and subject to its moral demands. For him, the conceptions of the local community and its normative framework, of the enterprise, and of the individuals within it need to be aligned with each other and developed togethe...

Article

In a world filled with poverty, environmental degradation, and moral injustice, social enterprises offer a ray of hope. These organizations seek to achieve social missions through business ventures. Yet social missions and business ventures are associated with divergent goals, values, norms, and identities. Attending to them simultaneously creates...

Many definitions and debates exist about the core characteristics of social and solidarity economy (SSE) and its actors. Among others, legal forms, profit, geographical scope, and size as criteria for identifying SSE actors often reveal dissents among SSE scholars. Instead of using a dichotomous, either-in-or-out definition of SSE actors, this pape...

Business ethicists often assume that unethical behavior arises when individuals deviate from the norms and responsibilities that are institutionalized to frame economic activities. People's greed motivates them to violate the rules of the game. In Kohlberg’s terms, it is assumed that such actors make decisions in a preconventional way and act oppor...
Conference Paper
Despite abundant research on work meaningfulness, the link between work meaningfulness and general ethical attitude at work has not been discussed so far. In this article, we propose a theoretical framework to explain how work meaningfulness contributes to enhanced ethical behavior. We argue that by providing a way for individuals to relate work to...
Article
Every time another corporate scandal captures media headlines, the 'bad apple vs. bad barrel' discussion starts anew. Yet this debate overlooks the influence of the broader societal context on organizational behavior. In this article, we argue that misbehaviors of organizations (the 'barrels') and their members (the 'apples') cannot be addressed pr...
