Publication reviews Social Organization performance after Brazilian Supreme Federal Court ruling

The book is based on the premise that the tendency to form multi-institutional corporate governance networks, partly based on partnerships, is an inescapable reality.

A brand new chapter in the history of social organizations has been written after the decision by Brazil’s Supreme Federal Court (STF) in 2015 to validate the Social Organization model and establish major improvements. This is the main subject of the book titled “Organizações Sociais após a decisão do STF da ADI 1.923/2015” [Social Organizations after the STF ruling on ADI 1.923/2015], launched on May 8, in Brasilia.

The book features contributions from Justice Luiz Fux, final rapporteur of ADI 1.923/DF; professor Paulo Modesto (UFBA), who helped develop the Social Organization model from a legal standpoint; and the professor from FGV’s Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE), Humberto Falcão Martins, responsible for developing the Social Organization model from a technical standpoint. Both professors have helped implement and promote research on Social Organizations over the last 20 years.

The book is based on the premise that the tendency to form multi-institutional corporate governance networks, partly based on partnerships, is an inescapable reality – seeing as the complex nature of public problems demands joint efforts among both public and non-public organizations, such as those from the non-profit sector.
