In fall 2016, the Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation and the Marshall Institute for Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship at the London School of Economics and Political Science cohosted the inaugural conference on the Economics of Social Sector Organizations, in Chicago.
This academic research conference brought together 40 faculty members from institutions across the globe, including CUNY’s Karna Basu, UCLA’s Bhagwan Chowdry, Duke’s Ofer Eldar, London School of Economic’s Maitreesh Ghatak, Harvard’s Oliver Hart, University of Oxford’s James Malcomson, Columbia’s Andrea Prat, and Loughborough University–London’s Justin Tumlinson.
The conference focuses on the growing set of organizations that are neither traditional profit-maximizing firms nor traditional wholly publicly owned or controlled government agencies.
The 2017 conference was held in London on September 22–23. The Rustandy Center and the Marshall Institute will continue to alternate hosting duties for future conferences.
