This article examines the role of multinationals and international business in poverty alleviation, based on an analysis of articles in the top journals in business, economics, and policy. We develop a conceptual cross-disciplinary framework that maps and disentangles the impact of different types of international business activities on five dimensions of poverty, moderated by country and industry effects. While our study suggests that the impact of all the types of business activities on povert...

We analyze business-NGO (B2N) alliances through the lenses of multiple agency and behavioral agency theories to identify the sources of agency problems and the most effective choice of mitigation mechanisms. We contend that three types of agency relationships constitute B2N alliances: the relationship between the firm's managers and B2N alliance employees; the relationship between the NGO's managers and the B2N alliance employees; and the novel “claimed principal-agent relationship” involving th...

Arguing that the exit of social ventures is likely to follow specific patterns, due the uniqueness of a social entrepreneur’s goals, the social venture’s emphasis on the provision of public goods, and its relationship to stakeholders, we conduct a qualitative analysis of the entrepreneurial exit of a Dutch social venture in Northern Tanzania. Our analysis suggests that the choice of exit and the potential exit routes are indeed specific to social ventures, as the original social goals of the ven...

We explore the impact on informal entrepreneurs of a formalization process started by formal institutions, aiming to understand the options they have in their response to the pressure to formalize and to identify the determinants of the choice of becoming formal or remaining informal. To do so, we study the process of formalization of informal street sellers in the city of Yaounde, Cameroon between 2004 and 2014. We find that, contrasting with prior studies that conceptualize the difference betw...
