ERNOP: Connecting Philanthropy Academia & Practice #5


In the fifth edition of our partnership with the European Research Network on Philanthropy (ERNOP), we hear from more academics whose work is featured in the latest batch of short, practitioner-focused ERNOP Research Notes.

In this episode we hear from:

Arthur Gautier from ESSEC Business School, about his work exploring how wealthy people’s life experiences shape their views on the relationship between impact investing and philanthropy


Isabel de Bruin from Erasmus University, about her research on how the “NGO halo effect” (i.e. the inflated sense of moral goodness that nonprofit organisations and their employees might feel) can contribute to unethical behaviour.


Janis Petzinger from St Andrews University about her work theorizing the role that philanthropic foundations play in the global policy sphere.
