Jordan Bédard-Lessard and Marie Beaulieu publish an article entitled 'Gouvernance des associations par des bénévoles: qui rend des comptes à qui?' (Governance of Associations by Volunteers: Who is Accountable to Whom?)

The content was drawn from a secondary analysis of data collected during the research project l’Action bénévole dans la lutte contre la maltraitance matérielle et financière envers les personnes aînées (ABAM-MF) (Volunteering to Counter Material and Financial Mistreatment of Older Adults). The article addresses the governance issue by focusing on the dual responsibilities of management and practice assumed by volunteers in the five non-profit organizations active to counter material and financial mistreatment of older adults.
