Abstract

Abstract of the synopsis: This synopsis presents the research agenda of the habilitation, which centres on the spread of business-like approaches into the nonprofit sector. A theoretical contextualization of the research is given by discussing its relationship to institutional theory on rationalization. The connections between the contained publications are explained, which range from foundational work on the state of research and alternatives to being business-like, to causes for the spread of business-like approaches, to consequences and practical applications. The main research contributions (in particular the most important typologies, frameworks and propositions developed in the articles) are summarised and the research needs and practical implications are reflected on. It is concluded that the effects of business-like instruments depend on the way they are used. They can contribute to exacerbating problems of capitalism in ways that are often not intended by their users. Or they can be tools to support other kinds of social and economic change. The synopsis concludes with a formal assessment of the included publications according to the relevant habilitation guidelines.
