Resource description

In this article, the author introduces the concept of normative delegitimation, the process by which an organization's normative legitimacy is diminished through challenges by outside organizations. Framing the phenomenon as a unique form of firm exposure-social risk, and using the context of social advocacy organizations' normative delegitimation challenges of firm behavior, he puts forward propositions concerning the firm, institutional, and socioeconomic antecedents that drive social risk. After this detailed discussion, the author considers extensions to the theory, particularly in terms of inter-organizational dynamic processes and the strategic management of social risk.
