About this product
- DescriptionThis book offers a rethinking of the burgeoning research on t-for-profit organizations and socially responsible ecomics. Adopting a comparative approach, the chapters explore and reinterpret the impact of social enterprises on the provision of general-interest services, work integration, microfinance, and fair trade, and show how these enterprises form the hub of an emerging ecomy of social responsibility. The book provides a new interpretation of social enterprises as entrepreneurial organizations that pursue social objectives and are successful due to the n-self-seeking motives of their members. This book will be of interest to postgraduate students, professionals working in the t-for-profit sector, and scholars interested in socially responsible ecomics. It is particularly suitable for seminars and workshops focusing on the management of t-for-profit organizations, sustainable development, and globalization.
