Dr Daniel King, Nottingham Trent University
As agents for good, we assume non-profits, charities and pressure groups should be democratic. Does it matter if they are not?
What are the consequences for a lack of democracy and collective decision making in non-profits?
If we expect non-profits to be democratic, are we holding them to a higher standard than profit making firms? Does this matter?
Dr Daniel King explores this controversial issue, suggesting that a blend of collective decision making and strategic leadership might be the way forward.
