Clemens Striebing arbeitet an den Beispielen von Transparenz und Multistakeholder Governance heraus, unter welchen Bedingungen Stiftungen gegenüber dem Gemeinwesen Rechenschaft für ihre Tätigkeit erbringen und wie effektiv diese Instrumente in der Praxis sind. Der Autor diskutiert die Rechenschafts-Problematik von Stiftungen sowie deren organisationssoziologische Einbettung. Die Arbeit zeigt, dass Stiftungsmanager und -gründer den Unterschied machen: Deren normative Erwägungen und institutionelle Logiken sind ausschlaggebender für das Erbringen freiwilliger Rechenschaft als ein strategisches Kalkül, bspw. um mehr Spenden einzuwerben, oder die Positionierung der Stiftung.
