CSPSE Seminar Series Spring 2021 - “Social Entrepreneurship in Context”: With Useful Tips for Publishing in Social Entrepreneurship


About this Webinar:

Social enterprise has come of age: it delivers social and public services around the world, a subject taught in leading universities (e.g., Harvard, Stanford to Oxford), and a fast-growing industry. However, much of our knowledge about social entrepreneurship comes from Western practices, experiences, and policies. Although Asia has unique traditions and experiences on social entrepreneurship, they remain under-represented in the global discourse on the field. This highlights the ‘context gap’ in theorizing and investigating social entrepreneurship.

This webinar aims to advance the field of social entrepreneurship by examining what is known and not known about the field, the institutional environments, and the action of social entrepreneurs in shaping the field in Asia.

Select authors will present their latest work in no more than 10 minutes each.

This event is a part of the Special Issue in ‘Social Entrepreneurship in Context’ in the Journal of Asian Public Policy (forthcoming in June 2021), edited by Yanto Chandra and Janelle Kerlin.
