Centre Director: Professor Noel Hyndman
The Centre for Not-for-profit and Public-sector Research (CNPR) is an interdisciplinary research centre based at Queen’s Management School, Belfast. It aims to promote research into issues relating to public-sector and not-for-profit organisations (such as charities, credit unions and social-enterprise agencies). It focuses on three main themes: accountability in the charity and public sectors; financial institutions; and managing in the charity and public sectors. The Centre brings together academic staff, graduate students and industry experts researching and practising in the area from across the university and elsewhere.
The overall aim of the Centre is to build and co-ordinate academic and sector expertise that will allow the examination, analysis and evaluation of not-for profit and public-sector organisations in order to promote understanding, good management practices and evidence-based policy development and debate. As such it will provide a foundation for thought leadership. This will be reflected in the positive effects of the Centre outside academia, particularly on civil society and on government.
