"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.
