National context matters: influence of national business system on social enterprises in Scotland and India

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In recent years, social entrepreneurship has attracted increasing attention thanks to existing successful initiatives such as the Ashoka Foundation (Ashoka, 2015), a global network of social entrepreneurs, and the work of social entrepreneur and Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus (Yunus, Moingeon, and Lehmann-Ortega, 2010). This has led to a flourishing academic research stream seeking to understand the phenomenon of social enterprise (Dacin, P. A., Dacin, and Matear, 2010; Fayolle and Matlay, 2010). Recent research in social entrepreneurship has also stressed the need to understand the effects of the institutional context on social enterprise (Doherty, Haugh, and Lyon, 2014; Zahra, Rawhouser, Bhawe, Neubaum, and Hayton, 2008). As an attempt to respond to this need, we examine the cases of two social enterprises, one operating in a developed country context, namely Scotland, and the other in a developing country context, namely India.
