Описание: Social enterprise has become a much discussed term in recent years, often in conjunction with the public sector - the idea that entrepreneurship might somehow step in and save the public purse has taken hold in a number of areas. This book introduces and explains the terminology surrounding social enterprise and brings much-needed rigour to proceedings by demonstrating how this can be measured, evaluated and held accountable. A range of validated evaluation measures, tools and techniques, such as ‘SROI’, the ‘Outcomes Star’ and randomised control trials, are presented in individual research projects, conducted by an exciting and eclectic mix of international authors who are recognised experts in the field of social enterprise. Wrapping up with the ground-breaking use of a General Self-Efficacy scale, a reflective critique of social finance and a challenge to the actual concept of social enterprise, the book discusses the potential disadvantages that can arise from the commodification of social enterprise activities, resulting in a fascinating summary of current thinking surrounding this topic.
Описание: The concepts of social enterprise and social entrepreneurship are rapidly attracting increased attention in academic spheres and from policy-makers, as well as field workers who are setting up new initiatives or reshaping their organizations. These concepts are perceived as defining innovative and dynamic responses to major global challenges in today’s societies. The debate about social enterprise is now world-wide, with lively exchanges between American and European scholars. However, the research and landscapes still differ significantly in different regions, and diversity also exists within specific regions such as Europe. This book presents the most comprehensive set of contributions reflecting the European-wide debate, but with frequent connections to developments in other parts of the world. This book is a result of work carried out by members of the EMES International Research Network, which is a pioneer in this field. Social Enterprise and the Third Sector will appeal to all researchers who focus on the third sector, social economy and social enterprise, to MBA and postgraduate students, as well as to intellectual social enterprise leaders and practitioners. It will soon become a key reference for all those who want to explore the full richness of these concepts and follow this important academic debate.
