Quotation Millner, Reinhard, Meyer, Michael. 2019. Social Impact Bonds: Aligning Interests or Pulling Someone Over the Barrel? EGOS Colloquium, Edinburgh, Gro├čbritannien, 04.07.-06.07.




Social Impact Bonds (SIBs) are a novel form of cross-sector collaborations and an alternative way of financing the delivery of innovative social services. The empirical evidence, however, regarding the viability of the instrument to achieve social impact and to generate lasting social innovation(s), taking into account the modes of organizing and governing, is still scarce. Based on a single case study and drawing on agency theory as well as resource dependence theory, this paper seeks to contribute to this lack of empirical knowledge by examining the process of interest alignment among involved stakeholders over the lifespan of a SIB pilot project in Continental Europe.
