Social Enterprise in a global context: the role of Higher Education Institutes



The British Council has commissioned SERIO, and colleagues in Futures Entrepreneurial Centre, at Plymouth University to undertake a global study to inform Social Enterprise policy.

The study will identify the benefits and challenges of partnership between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and Social Enterprises (SE) operating within an international context. The research project is taking place over a year and includes a mapping exercise of Social Enterprise across 12 countries including South Africa, India, Canada, Thailand and the UK as well as the development and implementation of a research framework that captures the impact of the work and the production of a range of case studies. Given that the mapping exercise will cover 12 separate countries across four continents, the research will also be globally relevant as well as inform policy at The British Council.
