Chapter 1: Exploring the terrain of social entrepreneurship: new directions, paths less travelled
Restricted access

In this scene-setting chapter we integrate some important, but less developed themes from the social entrepreneurship research literature, including subsequent chapters in this book, to help pave the way for a future research agenda on social entrepreneurship. In particular, we highlight the importance of inter- and multi-disciplinary approaches to the study of social entrepreneurship, the value to be gained from paying attention to context, and the need to move beyond studies which focus on particular dimensions of disadvantage and to incorporate intersectionality. A better understanding of the everyday will, we argue, clear a path for research to probe future imaginaries.
