SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP  AND LOCAL DEVELOPMENT

 

This session reviewed the conceptual framework and rationale for social enterprises as a tool for social inclusion and community development at local level. Research across OECD countries shows that the non-profit sector plays a key role in promoting social cohesion by identifying needs of disadvantaged groups, addressing gaps in service delivery, feeding information to local policy design and involving a range of policy stakeholders. The session presented the policy environment in which non-profit organisations have developed new forms of social entrepreneurship in service provision and delivery at local level.

A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF LEGAL FRAMEWORKS FOR SOCIAL ENTERPRISES ACROSS OECD COUNTRIES

 

Building on the rationale for social enterprise development, this session focuses on the role of legal frameworks as a key tool through which public policy can stimulate the development of social enterprise models pursuing both social and economic objectives to promote social cohesion at local level. The session addressed the following questions:

  • How have legal frameworks evolved and developed? What have been the key factors (in terms of policy framework and environment, recognition of existing practices, etc.) that have allowed for the development of specific regulatory frameworks?
  • What are the key regulatory elements that define policy approaches to social entrepreneurship?
  • What are the governance models that allow for public benefit status to be maintained in face of entrepreneurial activities? How are entrepreneurial activities defined?
  • What is the rationale for fiscal policy instruments defined by legal frameworks in the support of social entrepreneurship development at local level?
