A review of social entrepreneurship research and outline of academic dialogues
2011 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
In a state-of-the-art review of the field, we highlight the significant attention and importance of social entrepreneurship. We specify different issues discussed, core contributions in the literature, and outline certain areas of discussion. Overall, we notice that the concept is used in diverse ways in the literature and that much research has been invested to understand how to define social entrepreneurship, characteristics of the social entrepreneur, but also specific dialogues in areas such as marketization of NPOs, social innovation frameworks, community development and how to solve social challenges. The systematic literature review further point out a set of emerging discussions that warrant future attention. In addition to identifying room for future unique contributions, our hope is that this bibliographic study should contribute to scholars interested to contribute to this growing field of academic research by reducing ambiguity in how to develop incremental contributions that tie into, and builds upon, previous research.
