Journal of Nonprofit Education and Leadership
Over the last few decades, the world has experienced an unprecedented growth in the size and scope of civil society organizations (Boli & Thomas, 1999; Kaldor, Moore, & Selchow, 2012).1 On par with these developments is the ever increasing significance of what these organizations assumingly can and should do to mitigate and solve some of the more pressing social and environmental issues we currently face locally and globally. Yet despite the growing numbers and allotted importance of civil society organizations, relatively little is known globally about how we prepare, train, and educate present and future leaders and professionals in these organizations, nor have more normative issues been sufficiently addressed, such as how we should be preparing individuals for leading, managing, or administering these organizations.
