This special issue of Nonprofit Policy Forum contains a set of papers derived from a roundtable panel discussion at the 2018 ARNOVA annual conference, organized by special editor Aseem Prakash and his colleagues, to examine the recent Oxfam sexual exploitation scandal and its implications for governance of international NGOs, nonprofit theory and public policy. Prof. Prakash’s insightful introductory essay opens the issue by providing background on the scandal itself, the organizational and historical context in which it, and other NGO scandals, have occurred, and the questions that these events raise for policy, practice, nonprofit theory and future research. No need to summarize that content on this page, as Prof. Prakash’s essay provides a well-crafted yet compact overview of the symposium papers.
This issue is rounded out with a review by Janelle Kerlin of a new book entitled Theory of Social Enterprise and Pluralism, edited and co-authored by Philippe Eynaud, Jean-Louis-Laville, Luciane Lucas dos Santos, Swati Banerjee, Flor Avelino and Lars Hulgard, that offers a pluralistic and multidisciplinary theory of social enterprise based on experiences with multiple national contexts and policy approaches, in the global south and north.
I hope you find this issue stimulating and enjoyable.
