Sections and Common Interests Groups

Must be a member of ARNOVA to join. Your section registration expires when your ARNOVA membership expires, regardless of when it began. While renewing your membership, you will be able to renew section registration as well. 

Welcome to the Theories, Issues, Boundaries Section (TIBS). Here we offer you an opportunity to share and explore theory, issues, and boundaries considerations that concern you in your research and practice, whether in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, or any other region.

We are a section of over 100 members representing a broad range of disciplines, an international/global scope, and interest in comparative analysis. We are committed to working in and welcoming diverse communities and thus provide a unique setting for cross-fertilization of theoretical ideas, frameworks, and approaches.

The Section plays a leadership role in the dissemination of this scholarship both to the membership and to the broader community of scholars and practitioners. Our group includes both veteran ARNOVA scholars and those who have more recently entered our field--and all are welcome to join us.

The Section's mission statement

This section explores the broad and fundamental questions related to the nature and identity of the field of nonprofit studies. It examines, discusses, and debates the epistemological, philosophical, and political dimensions and assumptions of the field. This endeavor provides critical analysis that will hopefully influence future research agendas, both theoretically and practically oriented.
