Journal of Management Studies’ Special Issue Call for Papers: Challenges and Opportunities in the
Sharing Economy

This special issue explores how, when, why, where and under what conditions an emerging form of
collaborative consumption, popularly known as the “sharing economy” affects the creation and capture
of value. The sharing economy (a.k.a. shareconomy, access, collaborative, and peer economy) refers to a
class of economic arrangements in which asset owners and users mutualize access to the products or
services associated with these assets (Lamberton & Rose, 2012; Sundararajan, 2016). Fueled in part by
advances in information technology and excess resources, the sharing economy is now recognized as
offering easy and broad connection with customers and suppliers. Submission Process and Deadlines:
manuscripts will be reviewed according to the JMS double-blind review process. Submissions should be
prepared using the JMS Manuscript Preparation Guidelines. Manuscripts should be submitted between
November 15, 2017 and January 15, 2018 to Margaret Turner (business.jms@durham.ac.uk). For informal
inquires related to the Special Issue, proposed topics and potential fit with the Special Issue objectives,
please contact the guest editors.

Citizens’ e-participation on agenda setting in local governance: Do individual social capital and e-
participation management matter?
Jooho Lee & Soonhee Kim, Public Management Review, 23 pages - June 2017.

Abstract: although a growing body of literature has touted e-participation as a means of facilitating
greater citizen participation in policy decision-making processes, little is known about the driving forces
behind citizens’ use of e-participation. Based on a literature review of social capital and citizen
participation, this study develops and tests a model proposing that three dimensions of social capital and
three dimensions of citizen participation management should be positively associated with e-participation
in agenda setting. Using data from a Korean e-participation survey conducted in 2009, we found that
citizens tend to be more active e-participants when they have greater trust in government and are weakly
tied to offline social groups. We also found that citizen participants’ perception of government
responsiveness to their input can facilitate their e-participation. The study findings imply that local
governments should pay more attention to the function of public trust in local government and provide
quality feedback in response to citizen input. They should also be sensitive to how the social factors of e-
participants can facilitate involvement in agenda setting.


Living Labs – Instruments of Social Innovation in Rural Areas
Andreea Maria Tirziu & Catalin Vrabie, Proceedings of the Central and Eastern European e|Dem and
e|Gov (CEEEGov) Days 2017, 10 pages - June 2017.

Abstract: in a country where nearly half the population lives in rural areas, it is difficult to link concepts
such as smart cities, Internet of Things to the local government’s priority list. However, lately there have
been numerous initiatives to improve access to information using ICT in the rural communities as well.
The purpose of this article is not to exhaustively measure the already adopted means, but merely to
provide a series of items retrieved as barriers to ICT projects meant to develop these communities.
Following the studies conducted so far (in Romania there are about 2,700 communes – the lowest
administrative entities of our country), it was observed that the digital divide is found in 100% of these
areas. At the urban level – especially in the big cities, pilot projects for developing digital literacy among
the elder population had a relatively high success. Such programs have been initiated at the level of the
communes whose living standard is higher (the ones that are located near large cities). Their successes,
though certainly less visible than in the urban communities, are noteworthy. Most such programs have
targeted educational and health fields. The article we propose aims to show these programs’
implementation degree in Romania, providing as examples the most successful cases that help the social
innovation process. The intention with which we start this study is to create a list of objectives that the
initiators of these programs have to take into account during the preparation of those programs.


Sociedade civil e inovação social na esfera pública: uma perspectiva pragmatista

Duarte Serafim. Revista de Administração Pública, v. 51, n. 3, p. 369-387, Maio-Junho, 2017. 19

Resumo: Este artigo propõe uma nova leitura teórico-analítica para o estudo dos processos de inovação
social promovidos por atores da sociedade civil na esfera pública, com base na sociologia pragmática
francesa. Parte de uma discussão sobre o lugar das iniciativas da sociedade civil na ação pública na
atualidade. Em seguida, faz uma incursão no debate sobre a incidência da sociedade civil na esfera pública,
buscando evidenciar em que a sociologia pragmática francesa pode auxiliar para uma nova compreensão
desse processo. Finalmente, relaciona os debates sobre ação coletiva da sociedade civil, inovação social
e ação pública, sob uma ótica pragmatista, propondo um enfoque analítico particular para compreensão
dos processos de codefinição e codomínio de situações problemáticas em arenas públicas.

Resumo: objetivo – Esta pesquisa tem três objetivos. Primeiro, examinamos o papel dos valores sociais e
sustentáveis como precursores da orientação à inovação social, levando em consideração o interesse nos
retornos financeiros. Segundo, examinamos o papel da orientação à inovação social como antecedente
da atitude empreendedora social. Terceiro, estudamos como a atitude, as normas subjetivas e a
autoeficácia empreendedora influem na intenção de iniciar um empreendimento social entre residentes
do México. Metodologia – Foram conduzidas 745 enquetes entre residentes de baixa renda do México
que expressaram interesse em iniciar um empreendimento social. Usamos a modelação de equações
estruturais para testar o modelo. Resultados – Os resultados mostraram a influência positiva dos valores
sociais na orientação à inovação social, levando em consideração a influência dos interesses financeiros.
A orientação à inovação social, a atitude empreendedora social, a autoeficácia empreendedora e as
normas subjetivas foram identificadas como preditoras da intenção empreendedora social. Contribuições
– O artigo oferece informações úteis sobre a importância dos valores para a compreensão da orientação
à inovação social e a intenção empreendedora social.

The Emergence of the Sharing Economy: Implications for Development Abstract
Andy Hira & Katherine Reilly, Journal of Developing Societies, June 2017.

Abstract: with the spread of internet-based technologies, the sharing economy is emerging as a new and
rapidly growing sector of the economy. This sector offers transformative potential for many other sectors
of the economy, and possibilities for new economic activity and growth in the developing world. The
sharing economy is a misnomer, as while there are possibilities for more cooperative economic
approaches, the primary emphasis is on the reduction of transaction costs including the elimination of
middlemen in sales between a good/service provider and a customer. In this introductory article to the
special edition, we provide an overview of both the positive and negative potential for the contribution
of the sharing economy to development. On the one hand, we find that the reduction in transactions costs
and low price of mobiles improves access to goods and services, and reduces the need for economies of
scale for marginalized groups who lack access to capital and infrastructure. However, we point to the real
obstacles that the poor experience in using internet-based platforms to start businesses or accumulate
capital. We discuss the potential for labour substitution of traditional service providers, such as taxi
drivers. In juxtaposition to some of its claimants, we find that the sharing economy changes the nature of
institutional, regulatory and promotional challenges by the state and social groups, rather than reducing
the need for them.


Marek HUDON, Benjamin HUYBRECHTS, Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics, v.88, issue 02,
june 2017.

Abstract: to introduce this special issue we explore the conceptual and practical synergies between the
social economy and sustainable development. New empirical evidence is presented on the emergence of
these two research fields and the increasing combination of these fields in the literature. Several avenues
through which social enterprises can contribute to the transition towards sustainable development are
then identified. This is followed by a discussion of how and why the combination can be particularly fruitful
both for the social economy and for sustainability transition movements. We also highlight some
important challenges facing the social economy with regard to its contribution to sustainable
development. Finally we introduce the papers that constitute this special issue and show how they
contribute, individually and collectively, to a better understanding of the increasing linkage between the
social economy and sustainable development.


Anaïs PÉRILLEUX, Marthe NYSSENS, Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics, v.88, issue 02, june

Abstract: the emerging field of common good socio-economics is promising not only for the preservation
of common natural resources but also for common goods created by people through collective action, the
importance of which has been emphasized by the recent financial and economic crisis. Based on the case
of cooperative finance, this paper's outcomes are twofold. First, it shows that while the boundaries
between the nature and property regime of goods may be relatively clear for natural common goods, they
appear much more interlinked for human-made goods, where commons are embedded in
intergenerational reciprocity. Second, it demonstrates that financial cooperatives can be understood as
human-made commons and proposes a new way of thinking about public policies to design adequate
legislation to protect these commons from isomorphism, privatization and destruction.


Thomas BAUWENS, Jacques DEFOURNY, Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics, v.88, issue 02,
june 2017.

Abstract: one potential major role of social economy organizations in sustainability transitions is the
creation and mobilization of social capital. Yet, the social economy gathers very distinct organizational
models which may be associated with different types and levels of social capital. Accordingly, the objective
of this article is to explore whether, and if so how, the type and level of social capital differ between
mutual benefit organizations – which essentially seek to meet their members’ needs – and public benefit
organizations – which seek to enhance the well-being of a broader community or the society as a whole.
The study draws on an econometric analysis of different forms of social capital in two renewable energy
cooperatives which are located in Flanders but have clearly divergent orientations toward mutual versus
public benefit. The results show that, as compared with an orientation toward public benefit, an
orientation toward mutual benefit is associated with lower social identification with the cooperative and
weaker ties between members. Our study explores the underlying explanatory mechanisms behind these
relationships. Its findings contribute to understanding the potential roles played by cooperatives in
sustainability transitions.


Antonio PICCIOTTI, Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics, v.88, issue 02, june 2017.

Abstract: the concepts of sustainable development and social economy are currently undergoing a
process of convergence, determined by the extension of the concept of sustainability and the role of social
enterprise. In a context in which the primary focus of management literature, especially of North
American origin, concerns the concept and practices of social entrepreneurship, this paper explores the
experiences of European social enterprises and in particular of Italian social cooperatives. Social
cooperatives are experimenting with initiatives capable of responding to the emergence of new needs
and changes in society in a sustainable way. Based on an analysis of the experience of various social
cooperatives operating in the field of renewable energy sources, tourism, and the use of assets
confiscated from the Mafia, this paper aims to highlight how social enterprise manages to create contexts
of sustainable development, thereby building interorganizational and intersectoral collaborative
networks aimed at the activation of new paths for local development. This represents evidence of the
specific nature of the social enterprise, which is able to establish a number of coordination mechanisms.
It creates new businesses with public and private, and profit and non-profit partners, with the aim of
achieving a stated goal, or enters into contractual arrangements, in order to establish business
partnerships and build entire local manufacturing supply chains. In this way social enterprise promotes
interaction between resources of a public, market and community nature.


Martine VÉZINA, Marie-Claire MALO, Majdi BEN SELMA, Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics,
v.88, issue 02, june 2017.

Abstract: this study seeks to understand the nature and process of social innovation driven by mature
social economy enterprises, and the innovative capability that supports it. The research examines
enterprise capabilities by means of the institutional approach to social innovation and the Resource-Based
View theory (RBV). Based on grounded theory, this research focuses on a single case, the creation of the
Desjardins Environment Fund (DEF). Launched 25 years ago,1 DEF is the first mutual fund in North America
to include extra-financial criteria in its evaluation of business environmental management practices (fund
securities) for the information of individual investors. The findings of this empirical research show how a
major cooperative bank can generate social innovation and how this entails organizational innovations.
The findings also reveal how these innovations benefit from the strategic and process resources that the
Desjardins Movement managed to develop while taking into account both its core business (as a bank)
and its purpose (as a cooperative). This study shows that the innovative potential of the mature social
economy enterprise should not be underestimated.


Manager les tensions paradoxales dans l’économie sociale et solidaire: le cas des MJC
Jean-Bernard Nativel, Revue Internationale de l’Économie sociale (RECMA), numéro 344, juin 2017.

Résumé: Les maisons des jeunes et de la culture (MJC) sont exposées aux tensions paradoxales inhérentes
aux organisations. Cet article examine les causes des tensions paradoxales au sein de dix MJC et les outils
dont disposent les managers pour les gérer. L’auteur a effectué une analyse qualitative et exploratoire
des pratiques de gestion de ces tensions. La fragmentation de l’esprit solidaire et coopératif ainsi que
l’instrumentalisation des pratiques de gestion tendent à fragiliser les MJC. Afin de réduire les tensions
constatées, il semble nécessaire de refonder une réflexion sur la dynamique de la gouvernance dans le
domaine de la culture et les modalités locales des pratiques culturelles.


Les coopératives jeunesses de services importées du Québec. Pour un rapprochement des acteurs «
économiques » et « éducatifs » de l’ESS?
Sandrine Rospabé, Emmanuelle Maunaye et Hélène Le Breton, Revue Internationale de l’Économie
Sociale et Solidaire, numéro 344, juin 2017.

Résumé: Les coopératives jeunesses de services (CJS) se présentent comme un projet d’éducation des
jeunes à l’entrepreneuriat coopératif. Importé du Québec, ce projet est expérimenté en Bretagne depuis
2013. Il rassemble dans un partenariat inhabituel des acteurs « économiques » de l’ESS (coopératives,
pôle de développement de l’ESS, chambres régionales de l’ESS (Cress), etc.) et des acteurs « éducatifs »
de l’ESS (structures d’éducation populaire/jeunesse) qui vont faciliter, le temps d’un été, la création et le
développement d’une coopérative par des jeunes de 16 à 18 ans. Cet article interroge les perceptions de
ces deux familles d’acteurs sur les CJS et, ce faisant, les rapports qu’ils peuvent entretenir dans une
participation commune à ce projet. Il apparaît que ce travail en partenariat leur permet de déconstruire

Ramon Bastida, Frederic Marimonand and David Tanganelli, Management Decision, volume 55, issue 5,
May 2017.

Abstract: Establishing alliances between social economy enterprises (SEEs) is considered to be a solution
to the problem of providing enough resources and knowledge to compete in the global market and, at
the same time, to maintain identity and ownership. Nevertheless, an important number of alliances
breaks up after several years. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to study the key factors that affect
alliances’ development and outcome. In this study, the success factors that have been extensively tested
in investor-owned companies are assessed in SEEs, which present important differences in organizational
issues and corporate principles and values. This study defines a scale that includes the most important
factors that might be controlled by SEE managers to develop successful alliances. These factors are
grouped into three categories: relational capital, relationship governance and the partner selection
process. The study also assesses the impact of these factors on alliance performance. Statistical analysis
through structural equation modelling shows that relationship governance and the partner selection
process have a significant impact on performance. Therefore, they can be considered success factors in
alliances among SEEs. Taking into account the relevant contribution of the SEEs to the European economy,
and having noted the scarce number of studies about alliances success factors in the social economy
sector, this study offers a significant contribution to this research field. Moreover, findings will be also
interesting for SEE managers and social economy authorities when designing programmes to empower
and support alliances.


A Hybrid Method (ANP-SWOT) to Formulate and Choose Strategic Alternatives for Development of
Rural Cooperatives in Iran
A. A. Barati, K. Kalantari, M. R. Nazari and A. Asadi, Journal of Agricultural Science and Technology,
volume 19, pages 1-13, May 2017.

Abstract: Rural cooperatives, as a small member-owned organizations, are the potential to facilitate socio-
economic development in rural areas. Despite this fact, in Iran and many other developing countries, they
have not had remarkable successes in this regard. Because strategy formulation and management is a
plan to obtain far-reaching development effects of any organization. This study aimed to present a hybrid
method to formulate and choose strategies for rural cooperatives development. It combined SWOT
analysis, TOWS matrix, and the Analytic Network Process (ANP). We applied brainstorming technique to
analyze the external and internal environment of rural cooperatives using the contributions of an experts’
team comprising 10 individual CEOs of rural cooperatives and senior employees of the Central
Organization of Rural Cooperatives. When this team identified key SWOT factors, TOWS matrix was
constructed to create good strategic alternatives. Finally, ANP was applied to prioritize the strategies.
According to results, 19 key strategic factors such as lack of management knowledge (W4), and ability to
improve value and supply chains (S4) were identified. In addition, this team identified 11 strategic
alternatives which among them Implement public policy and provide technical and financial services
(SO2), Facilitate procurement of inputs and develop supply and value | 4
http://www.chaire.ecosoc.uqam.ca/Bulletindeveille/tabid/150/Default.aspx chains (SO1) and Involve
rural cooperatives in policy planning (ST1), had greater priority in Iran. The experts’ team believed that
the presented combined approach helps decision makers and managers to make and choose the best
alternative strategies and factors that affect rural cooperatives development.


• Ética, epistemologia e sociologia da ciência na Administração Pública:
Registering Ideology in the Creation of Social Entrepreneurs: Intermediary Organizations, ‘Ideal Subject’
and the Promise of Enjoyment
Pascal Dey and Othmar Lehner, Journal of Business Ethics, volume 142, issue 4, pages 753–767, June

Abstract: Research on social entrepreneurship has taken an increasing interest in issues pertaining to
ideology. In contrast to existing research which tends to couch ‘ideology’ in pejorative terms (i.e.,
something which needs to be overcome), this paper conceives ideology as a key mechanism for rendering
social entrepreneurship an object with which people can identify. Specifically, drawing on qualitative
research of arguably one of the most prolific social entrepreneurship intermediaries, the global Impact
Hub network, we investigate how social entrepreneurship is narrated as an ‘ideal subject’ which signals
toward others what it takes to lead a meaningful (working) life. Taking its theoretical cues from the theory
of justification advanced by Boltanski, Chiapello and Thévenaut, and from recent affect-based theorizing
on ideology, our findings indicate that becoming a social entrepreneur is considered not so much a matter
of struggle, hardship, and perseverance but rather of ‘having fun’. We caution that the promise of
enjoyment which pervades portrayals of the social entrepreneur might cultivate a passive attitude of
empty ‘pleasure’ which effectively deprives social entrepreneurship of its more radical possibilities. The
paper concludes by discussing the broader implications this hedonistic rendition of social
entrepreneurship has and suggests a re-politicization of social entrepreneurship through a confronting
with what Slavoj Žižek calls the ‘impossible’.

Financing Nonprofits and Other Social
Enterprises: A Benefits Approach

Dennis R. Young, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2017.


Abstract: This book applies benefits theory to the
financing of nonprofit and other social purpose
organizations. Individual chapters are devoted to
organizations primarily reliant on earned income,
gifts, government support and investment
income, respectively, as well as organizations that
are highly diversified in their sources of operating
support. The book is intended to guide managers
and leaders towards finding the best mix of
income sources for their organizations, to help
educate future managers about resource
development and to stimulate additional research
on the financing of nonprofits and other forms of
social enterprise.

Les biographies en sociologie

Claude DUBAR, Sandrine NICOURD, La
Découverte, 2017.


Résumé: L’usage des données biographiques
connaît actuellement un nouvel essor en
sociologie, soulevant une série de questions.
Quelles dynamiques sociales révèle l’analyse de
cas individuels ? Pourquoi certains sociologues
considèrent-ils les données biographiques comme
des sources essentielles de connaissance des
réalités sociales, tandis que d’autres les jugent
peu fiables ? Quelles utilisations les sociologues
font-ils des matériaux biographiques ?
Ce livre montre que la complexité des processus
de socialisation et les multiples temporalités de la
vie invitent à utiliser les données biographiques
en les associant à des perspectives théoriques et
des méthodologies spécifiques.
L’étude des biographies nécessite une pluralité de
regards : leur contextualisation sociohistorique à
travers les dimensions d’âges et de générations
(parcours de vie), les évolutions des positions
sociales au sein de champs sociaux (trajectoires)
et les différentes sphères de socialisation
