Abstract This article identifies a number of ways in which governance thinking has raised issues of ownership and management in organisations with public-serving roles. It tracks backwards to consider how such issues have been handled in the past: notably in the theory and practice of socialisation and nationalisation, in the adoption of cooperative and mutual forms of organisation, and in the use of enterprises mixing public and private ownership, with some fairly novel recent developments being noted. It then explores how these arrangements are affected by various rights to own and manage organisations and by the ways in which such rights can be exercised to protect and promote significant interests. The questions and issues considered suggest useful lines of future organisational inquiry.
