    Partnerships for Sustainable Change in Cotton: An Institutional Analysis of African Cases. [REVIEW]Verena Bitzer & Pieter Glasbergen - 2010 - Journal of Business Ethics 93 (S2):223 - 240.
    This article examines intersectoral partnerships formed to promote sustainable cotton production and the extent to which such partnerships are facilitated or constrained by their institutional environment. Based on an analysis of five partnerships in sub-Saharan Africa, this article shows that institutional factors create both opportunities and obstacles for partnership implementation which are inextricably linked to their adoption of particular farming strategies and sustainability standards. In general, these institutional factors tend to facilitate the implementation of partnerships using contract farming and mainstream (...)

    Sustainable Palm Oil as a Public Responsibility? On the Governance Capacity of Indonesian Standard for Sustainable Palm Oil.Nia Kurniawati Hidayat, Astrid Offermans & Pieter Glasbergen - 2018 - Agriculture and Human Values 35 (1):223-242.
    This paper is motivated by the observation that Southern governments start to take responsibility for a more sustainable production of agricultural commodities as a response to earlier private initiatives by businesses and non-governmental organizations. Indonesia is one of the leading countries in this respect, with new public sustainability regulations on coffee, cocoa and palm oil. Based on the concept of governance capacity, the paper develops an evaluation tool to answer the question whether the new public regulation on sustainable palm oil (...)

    Serving a Heterogeneous Muslim Identity? Private Governance Arrangements of Halal Food in the Netherlands.Laura Kurth & Pieter Glasbergen - 2017 - Agriculture and Human Values 34 (1):103-118.
    The consumption of halal food may be seen as an expression of the Muslim identity. Within Islam, different interpretations of ‘halal’ exist and the pluralistic Muslim community requests diverse halal standards. Therefore, adaptive governance arrangements are needed in the halal food market. Globalization and industrialization have complicated the governance of halal food. A complex network of halal governors has developed from the local to the global level. In this paper, we analyze to what extent halal certification bodies in the Netherlands (...)

    Challenges for NGOs Partnering with Corporations: WWF Netherlands and the Environmental Defense Fund.Mariette van Huijstee, Leo Pollock, Pieter Glasbergen & Pieter Leroy - 2011 - Environmental Values 20 (1):43-74.
    As the market and civil society sectors reflect different core logics, non-governmental organisations that partner with companies need strategies to cope with these differences. This paper seeks to provide insight into the coping strategies of environmental NGOs that partner with corporations. We present an assessment framework to analyse the strategies of the Environmental Defense Fund and the World Wildlife Fund for Nature Netherlands as case studies. The analysis demonstrates that the strategic options for a partnering NGO are guided and constrained (...)

    Exploring the Potential of Intersectoral Partnerships to Improve the Position of Farmers in Global Agrifood Chains: Findings From the Coffee Sector in Peru. [REVIEW]Verena Bitzer, Pieter Glasbergen & Bas Arts - 2013 - Agriculture and Human Values 30 (1):5-20.
    Despite their recent proliferation in global agricultural commodity chains, little is known about the potential of intersectoral partnerships to improve the position of smallholder farmers and their organizations. This article explores the potential of partnerships by developing a conceptual approach based on the sustainable livelihoods and linking farmers to market perspectives, which is applied in an exploratory study to six partnerships in the coffee sector in Peru. It is concluded that partnerships stimulate the application of standards to receive market access (...)
