Centre Social Governance

Centre Social Governance

The Centre for Social Governance aims to add value for type of social profit organisation using good governance best practices. The goal of the centre is to share the knowledge and expertise from GUBERNA with social profit organisations. Specifically, good governance in social profit organisations has to do with the way power and organisational processes are managed in order to achieve the mission and social impact with the collective interest of all the stakeholders (members, beneficiery groups, subsidising government, donors, etc.). 

Our publications

Centre Social Governance

Since best governance practices in social profit organisations tend to differ strongly from one another, GUBERNA decided to start initiatives for the specific sectors that these organisations are active in. The hospital sector, for example, was given a specific place within the centre. In addition, GUBERNA has developed (or has participated in) different projects to help social profit organisations achieve their mission and social impact in the best possible way.

Social Governance Academy

In order to continue the King Baudouin Foundation’s initiatives and contribute to the execution of these recommendations, four partners (GUBERNA, Curia, Hefboom en Crédal) joined forces. Thanks to prof. Marleen Denef's (CURIA) proactivity, the Social Governance Academy (SGA) was started, a centre that gives the necessary support to social profit organisations to carry out recommendations with their organisation. In 2011 and 2012 the Social Governance Academy organised hands-on workshops to help organisations and to establish the conditions for good governance. 

Our objectives for 2021
