GHNP PhD seminars "The multi-dimensional nature of public-private hybrid organizations: conceptual advancements and empirical analyses"

Meeting people

Modern public administration is featured by a constellation of hybrid organizations (HOs), which combine aspects from the public, private and third sectors.

The focus of this PhD thesis is on organizations blending features from the public and private sectors, such as State-Owned Enterprises. The thesis adopts an organizational analysis perspective to reconcile extant knowledge on HOs under a unitary framework, paving the way for future research and providing further conceptual clarity between HOs and Public-Private Partnerships.

Moreover, it contributes to the definition of adequate measurement systems to account for the multi-dimensional nature of HOs' activities.
