Direct and Indirect Impact of Institutional Logics of Civil Liberties and Religion on Social Enterprises
Crowell School of Business
This paper theorises how the institutional logics of civil liberties and religion shape the social value creation outcome of social enterprises (SEs). While the study found that both logics of civil liberties and religion directly affect SEs’ work, they also interact with the degree of rationalisation in SEs and jointly influence their social value creation outcome. The hypotheses are tested using a unique dataset of 119 faith-based international SEs. The findings show that the demands of institutional logics are moderated by the rationalised management practices of SEs and shape how they respond to the multifaceted institutional pressures.
