Now published: “Social Innovation and Social Enterprise”

This handbook compiles contributions of researchers in the field of social innovation and entrepreneurship like Anne-Laure Fayard, Miguel Pina e Cunha, Miguel Alves Martins, and Ricardo Zózimo, professors at Nova SBE

"Social Innovation and Social Enterprise" provides an exhaustive, critical analysis of the challenges and opportunities associated with social enterprises and social innovation.  More specifically, it addresses questions such as: What is social innovation? Which are the best theories that explain how social innovations are generated and propagated in a global society? What is a social enterprise? Which are the theoretical perspectives that best describe the functioning of Social Enterprises, the threats, and opportunities? How do social enterprises deal with the profit and non-profit worlds and how do these interactions affect their capability to be social innovators?

This book follows these perspectives exploring the link between social innovation and social enterprises, presenting them as a new possible field of research that supports new ways to understand and theorize individual, organizational, and community behaviors.

Atrocities, murders, and untouchability: Measuring caste-based discrimination

How can we best measure inter-caste tension and discrimination in India? In this post, Victoire Girard highlights the limitations of using statistics compiled under the Prevention of Atrocities Act, which was implemented in 1989 to combat caste-based discrimination. She documents that reported murders of lower castes, or even averaged responses regarding untouchability in household surveys, appear to provide more consistent proxies of inter-group tensions across states.

THE CHOICES OF

Zona de Impacto: Mentalities evolved; however, women are still discriminated in the job market. Why?

Statistics are known. Women have a higher qualification rate than men, but they receive less (for the same jobs) and are more precarious. When it is time to reach roles of responsibility, they have a harder life (and, as the companies get bigger, the worse it is). The topic is old, solutions take a long time to produce effects, and this worries the youth. Marta Everard and Rita Mendes, students at NovaSBE and members of the club Women on Board, explain how they perceive their labor’s future
