This groundbreaking book shows how dynamic alliances between businesses and non-profit organizations are improving social conditions across Latin America. The book itself is a milestone collaboration between Harvard University and business schools from throughout the region. Social Partnering in Latin America is about new alignments and changing times—a must-read for business and political leaders.—Enrique V. Iglesias, President, Inter-American Development Bank

There is a growing recognition that economic and social progress are inextricably intertwined. Companies must learn to integrate their activities with society, while social organizations need to learn to collaborate with business rather than view it with suspicion. This book is a landmark in exploring this new collaboration in the crucial setting of developing economies. It will be truly indispensable to scholars and practitioners alike.—Michael E. Porter, Bishop William Lawrence University Professor, Harvard Business School

In Social Partnering in Latin America, the SEKN research team has effectively extended to the international arena and advanced James Austin’s pathbreaking framework for understanding and developing institutional collaborations. A real strength of the book is its 24 case studies drawn from throughout Latin America. A must-read for both practitioners and scholars of business, government, and the nonprofit sector.—Dennis R. Young, Professor of Nonprofit Management and Economics, Case Western Reserve University, and President, National Center on Nonprofit Enterprise
